OS X V10.7 Lion :: Close A TextEdit Document Without Saving?

May 24, 2012

Just switched to Lion, and was alarmed to notice existing (previously saved) TextEdit files closing without an option to save or not save changes. How can I open a TextEdit file, edit it, and then close it without saving the changes? (I often like to print a document without the photo that may be in it, so I delete the photo, print, and then close without saving, because I didn't want the photo permanently removed from the document.)

MacBook Air :: Delete This TextEdit Document From It?

Apr 25, 2012

Im not able to delete a TextEdit document from my MacBook, Everytime I move it to the trash and click 'empty' the file returns to the desktop, I've also tried to delete the words from the document then moving it to the trash but the document returns to the desktop. I really don't know what to do, worried this might be a virus.

OS X :: Retrieve An Unsaved TextEdit Document Without Time Machine?

May 1, 2009

Stupid mistake, simple question. Was taking down some notes in TextEdit, closed file by mistake without saving. Anything I can do?

I should point out the file does exist, it just obviously reverted back to the state it was in before I did the particular hour or so of work in it.

EDIT: Should also point out I'm not using Time Machine.

OS X Mavericks :: Which App To Use To Scan And Edit A Document

Sep 10, 2014

I have an iMac desktop with a 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5 processor and 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 memory.  The operating system is Mac OS X, 10.9.4.  Using my current software, I am unable to satisfactorily scan a document (in this case, a small community street map showing streets and lots with house numbers and owner's last names) and then be able to edit the scanned map to update it with new owner's names.  I am told that a PDF scanner app may allow to me to scan and edit a document.

Windows On Mac :: Edit Textbox In Word 2008 Document?

Oct 29, 2010

I'm trying to edit the text in textboxes that I put in a Word 2008 document. It was straightforward to click, add, edit, etc. for several days while constructing this document. Now that I've added page numbers, I can select the text boxes and click inside, but when I do, the curser goes to the top of the box and won't let me do anything except add text or delete right there at the top. I cannot access the text in the rest of the box to edit or delete. This is on a MacBook with Leopard.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Safari Title Bar Disappears With Cursor?

Mar 20, 2012

For the last two weeks, when using Safari, the top bar which shows the word Safari, File etc (can't remember what it is called) disappears unless I move my cursor up to it.  I have checked Safari preferences and System preferences and can't figure out how to stop it from disappearing.  I suspect it is a check box. 

I have tried to check the "view" option to hide/show and neither solves the problem.

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 V10.7 Lion :: Change Name Of TextEdit / Trash?

May 5, 2012

It looks like some icons names cannot be changed in OS X Lion via the Resources technique? I used to use the tips from this thread in Leopard and Snow Leopard but now the game seems to be up:


I would, normally, replace the app with a copy of itself to overwrite the name but Lion won't let me delete the original because the OS needs it and like I said, the Resource lproj trick doesn't seem to work.

Is there a way to change the name of the Trash or TextEdit app?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: TextEdit Keep Loosing What I Typed

Jun 15, 2012

I just lost a whole hours worth of research. I was typing in text edit and then it started making me duplicate the file at every save and then I had to replace the orginal, and I did this several times until I finally decided to close it down (as it's done this before) and when I opened it up again a whole hours worth of research was missing. I clicked on the Restore button but it hadn't saved any of my research for over an hour.

Is there another way to get that restored?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To See Path Of Current File In TextEdit (or Any App)

Feb 22, 2012

Pre-Lion the way to see the path of the file you are currently looking at (in any app, but for simplicity let's say TextEdit), was to select Save As... and it would default to the directory the file is open in. At least that's the way I did it... 

So now in Lion (which I generally like) how do you see what directory your current file is located in??

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Prevent TextEdit From Opening A New Page?

May 4, 2012

I do a lot of editing of text docs and every time I open TextEdit it opens a new doc when I want to just open the doc I'm after. Then I have to close both of them.  This gets annoying when editing several docs.  Is there any way to turn off the new doc? I don't see that option in the menu or preferences.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: TextEdit 1.7 Will Not Display Users/Library/Fonts

Mar 14, 2012

Having upgraded to Lion 10.7.3, the TextEdit 1.7 (289.3) application does not display any fonts placed in Users area: Mac HD/Users/Library/Fonts.  But the same fonts are OK when placed at Public area:  Mac HD/Library/Fonts.  Tried Repairing Permission via Disk Utility with no joy. Although fonts placed at Users area don't display in TextEdit, they do display in Quark XPress, FileMaker, OpenOffice, Illustrator etc, etc.

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.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: TextEdit: Incorrect "downloaded From The Internet" Alerts

Mar 22, 2012

I am getting "downloaded from the internet" alerts on files I have created myself, and were never downloaded. Example: create a new file with TextEdit, put some text in it, save it as Test.tst, and close it.

If I re-open it, I get the warning: "This may be an application. It was downloaded from the internet etc.". But it is not executable, it is just a flat text file, and it was definitely not downloaded from the internet. If I give it the extension .txt instead of .tst this does not happen, but I want to work with non-standard extensions sometimes. Strangely, if I give it no extension at all, the problem also does not occur. So the system distrusts ".tst", but anything without extension is OK? Looks like a bug or misdesigned feature to me. 

The most annoying thing is that if I make changes to such a file I get the same warning again, and this continues forever.When I type "ls -ld@ Test.tst" I see: com.apple.quarantine23  This is supposedly the reason for the message. I know I can change that for each file separately or turn off quarantine completely, but that is not what I want.Is there a way to switch of quarantine just for certain file extensions?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Edit A Distribution List

Feb 20, 2012

If I have a "group" in Address book, how do I edit "which" email is the address to use for each user in that group? Back in Snow Leopard, there was a discussion article that said iCloud broke the ability to edit a distribution list, but that it would likely be fixed in Lion. how to do this in Lion? No matter what I do, that option is greyed-out in my Edit menu.
