OS X V10.7 Lion :: 10.7.4 Preview, TextEdit Unable To Close Windows?

May 22, 2012

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?

Dec 25, 2007

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

Jan 9, 2009

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 :: Is There A Free Notepad Equivalent On A Mac That Will Unformat Text

May 19, 2010

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.

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?

Jan 18, 2010

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

Jun 14, 2010

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.

Applications :: How To Control The Margins In TextEdit

Dec 13, 2004

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

Apr 30, 2009

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?

Feb 16, 2010

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

Mar 17, 2012

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?

Jun 4, 2012

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?

OS X :: How To Use TextEdit To Build Webpage Source Code?

Oct 8, 2010

I have been using a PC to design web sites for years, but I recently purchased a MacBook Pro to use instead. On my Windows computer, I would use NotePad to create and edit .html files, which I could then just save and open in a browser. I have been trying to use TextEdit in the same way, but it doesn't appear to be working ... I just write the code into the app and then save it as an HTML file, but when I try to open it, what displays in my browser window is just the text.
