OS X Leopard :: Looking For Mac Equivalent For Windows Notepad?
I'm trying to write a single snippet of code for my iPhone. The directions call for using Windows notepad.

Is there a Mac equivalent for simple coding?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: 10.7.4 Preview, TextEdit Unable To Close Windows?
I finally upgraded to 10.7.4 this morning, and promptly opened TextEdit to write a new note to myself. When I tried to save it- cmd+S - the "File" in the menu bar was selected for ~10 seconds, as though it were saving, and then it was done. I never got the dialog to actually name the file, choose where to save it, etc. (Keep in mind that I'd just opened a new blank file, so I was kind of expecting this dialog.) Then it got weirder. I tried to close the window- cmd+W - and the x in the upper-left corner of the window was selected, as though it were trying to close, for ~10 seconds. Then it gave up and the window was still there. Needless to say I gave up, force-quit TextEdit and wrote the note in emacs. Should've done that all along... 

Then, just now, I had the same thing happen to me in Preview. Can't save files, or close windows. Tried duplicating a jpg to save as a copy somewhere else, and never got a save dialog, and couldn't close either the copy or the original.

Software :: Finding NotePad Alternative?
I'm looking for a good alternative for the Wndows' Notepad.

Something that will let me very quickly view any type of file.

Text edit isn't light enough, and also doesn't let me view many files (it just shows them as an attachment...)

Applications :: Darwine 1.1.7 + Notepad++ On Leopard
I would like to use the Notepad++ on my new Mac, I found out (after a lot og Googling) that I need and Mac version of the Wine - the Darwine to be able to run it. So I got the 1.1.7 version of the Darwin form HERE After the installation I have the Darwine folder inside the Applications and it contains:

- Sample WineLib Applications
- Wine.Bundle
- WineHelper

Afterwards I got the Notepad++ from HERE. I downloaded the executable file (npp.5.1.3.Installer.exe) Now - my understand it about how to run the Notepad++ correctly is following:

1) Run the Wine.Bundle
2) Click "Choose the application"
3) Do so

- But just I can not choose the "npp.5.1.3.Installer.exe".
- If I just run the npp.5.1.3.Installer.exe direcly via clickung on it - it crashes
- If I try to run the WineHelper - it also crashes ....

OS X Leopard :: Extract Info From Notepad (Classic App)
I didn't realize I'd lose the ability to open Classic applications with my 10.5 upgrade. Now I have some information I need stuck in the Note Pad file (Note Pad was part of the system software up to OS 9, accessible from the Apple menu). I could access the file by using Classic Environment with 10.4.11, but can't anymore. I tried opening the note pad file (not the application) with TextEdit and of course, it didn't work.

Is there a free windows notepad equivalent on a mac that will unformat text?

I dont like TextEdit as it keeps all formatting hyperlinks etc. I need to be able to copy text from a website, paste it into a program, which will then strip everything out of it apart from the actual text, and then copy it back from said program.

Logic Studio / Pro :: Any Way To Open Notepad When Transcribing Interviews
When transcribing an interview or conversation from an audio file in Logic, Is there a way to open inside Logic a note pad into which you can type the text? Rather than having two applications (i.e. Logic plus Word or Text Edit) open and have to switch between the two with mouse clicks. Also - is it possible to hook up a midi pedal to switch on and off Logic's transport so that you don't need to take your fingers off the keyboard as you type?

OS X :: To Use A Wildcard In Textedit?
Is there a way to use a wildcard with Find and Replace in Textedit.

I have: word1 word2 word3

I need to wrap them in quotation marks and add commas. The final result I'm after is 'word1' , 'word2' , 'word3'

Is there any easy way to do this-- other than typing them? Otherwise, I've got a lot of typing to do.

OS X :: Editing Files In Textedit?
Hi everyone! I made the switch to Mac recently after my Dell laptop crashed, and I had just had enough of Vista. I'm LOVING it and getting accustomed to it, but one thing is driving me completely CRAZY and I hate it-

I run a website and on my PC, I would simply edit the coding myself, in notepad. They are PHP files, and uploaded perfectly, no problems.

I opened the file to update the site tonight and it opened in Opera, and didnt show my code. I selected to open it in textedit, and edited it fine, uploaded, etc. After awhile, I found something else that needed to be updated and opened in TextEdit again and now it only shows me a PREVIEW of that PHP file, and not the coding. How can I fix this-- or what else can I use that's going to strictly show me the code only and edit it?

Applications :: TextEdit Will Not Quit
I have a situation in which TextEdit simply will not Quit. It is constantly loaded. Even after a system reboot TextEdit is always loaded and displays a blank text edit window. The blank text edit window can be closed by not TextEdit application itself. Somehow, perhaps some setting, configuration, or possible conflict with another program it is being forced to stay open. It is not causing any system problems to my knowledge, but it is an irritant.

OS X Leopard :: Keys Work Only With Textedit
I'll be typing away in a program (this mostly happens in Excel and Entourage, but occasionally Firefox as well) when, out of nowhere, the keys stop working. However! If I load up TextEdit and start typing, the keys work, so I mash for a couple seconds, switch back to the offending program, and it usually goes back to functioning. Sometimes I go a long while without encountering this program, sometimes it's every few minutes. Sometimes I have to switch between the program and TextEdit a few times before it works, sometimes I have to load up a different program than TextEdit, another browser or something else that's got readily available fields for typing, before it goes back.

Pages 09 :: TextEdit Not Print On HP D4300
Just bought the iWork 09 CD 'cause TextEdit was unreliable (file savings problems galore). Trying to print text saved under .pages or .doc (=TextEdit), my HP Deskjet gets started as usual, then always quits with these messages: "Impression of page one 14% effected" (loosely translated from the French), then "Imprimante ready" (still in French) above "/Library/Printers/hp/cups/Deskjet.driver/Contents/MacOS/Deskjet failed".

Other details: screenshots from Aperçu (Preview), texts saved under .html (Safari) and .pdf (Adobe Reader) do get printed, and then I had no problems with Pages/TextEdit when using my other printer, a Canon Pixma ip2600. So I suppose it's purely an issue between the D4300 driver and either iWork 09 and/or OS 10.5.8 which I downloaded yesterday too. Shall I try updating the driver first or look for a Permissions problem?

Applications :: How To Control The Margins In TextEdit
How do you control the margins in TextEdit?

I am trying to create a manual which includes some screen snaps which fit on A4 paper, but TextEdit persistently has fat margins and won't print the images that are wider than width allowed by the margins.

The screen grabs appear on screen but when I print the document the wider images do not print although they leave a gap in the text equal to their height.

I have:

Adjusted the preferences:

� for window width which is in No of Characters (how wide is a character when you are using rtf?)

� checked Wrap to window which shows a page view but the margins don't change

� I have created an entire new page in Page Setup with fixed margins and selected it but nothing changes

Mac Help says the margins can be altered by dragging the page margin markers in the ruler, but they will not drag outside what seems to be the default margins, This wouldn't help with top and bottom margins anyway.

I have tried using Acrobat PDF as the printer but again I get no further options and nothing changes.

I am at my wits end. TextEdit is almost temptingly useful except for the weird UI.

OS X :: How To Get Fonts To Display In TextEdit And Other Apps
When I select a font in TextEdit, it doesn't show what the font looks like; they all appear with the same, generic font. It does this in a few other apps too. In the Mac version of MS Office this doesn't happen. Is there a simple way to fix this as I'm appalling at remembering what a font looks like with just the name of it in front of me!

OS X :: TextEdit Not Opening At Last Position And Size?
I have a rather silly query. With most windows, they open in the last position and size that they were closed. This general behaviour appears to hold true for most applications, whether system preferences, native applications, or third party applications. However, I have noted - to my great frustration - that TextEdit does not conform to this behaviour. Instead, it chooses to open in a specific place and size each time, regardless of what I do. Anything I can do to fix this.

MacBook Air :: TextEdit Should Have A Scrollbar
Apparently Apple has decided TextEdit does not need a permanent scrollbar, and that users won't mind going through two steps to make it appear temporarily. 

I hate this and now will need to download a different simple text-editing program. A scrollbar is necessary for text writing. Shame on Apple.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: TextEdit Saving Without Asking?
My computer is set up with a network drive that does not allow for the new feature "versions" to function properly. I guess at some point a window popped up and asked if I wanted to save anyway and I clicked the "do not show message again" and cancel. Well it has remembered my choice to not show this message again but now it just permanently overwrites and saves text files when I close them without even hesitating. So 10 minutes ago I had a very important file open and accidentally modified it, I was done with the file but did not want to save it so instead of undoing I just closed the file. This new system has completely overwritten the file with this new version and when I reopen it there are no undo options or previous versions available to restore. How do I turn this stupid feature off?

Pages 09 :: Looking For Specific Wordpad Function (TextEdit)
I was looking for a specific wordpad function, and was hoping that Apple's TextEdit program had such a feature. What I am looking for, is the ability to insert the equivalent of one of those little triangles that point to the right, indicating that there is expandable content if clicked (which would of course reveal the content underneath what followed the triangle, which would than be pointing downward). You know, very much like how you view a finder window in 'list view'. I would love to have those expandable/collapsable triangles for lists I set up in TesxtEdit.

This function would also work well for writing paper outlines, or organizing information under various topic headings, so I could enter notes and content under each heading's dropdown area of text, and than collapse it to minimize the cluttering of my document. Does TextEdit have a feature that provides the same kind of result? If not, does anyone know of any program that has a feature like this? I currently have been employing TextEdit for my needs running Tiger, so please fill me in on any features that TextEdit under Leopard might have that would get me to my desired goal.
