Re-enable old style auto-save for TextEdit (with a real "Save As...").
Authored by: Lri on Dec 19, '12 03:44:53AM

If you already have backups, just run these two commands:

sudo codesign -f -s - /Applications/TextEdit.app/
defaults write ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.TextEdit.plist ApplePersistence -bool false

The normal preference file is ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.TextEdit/Data/Library/Preferences/com.apple.TextEdit.plist, which is also modified by defaults write -app textedit. But when you replace the code signature, the default preference file becomes ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.TextEdit.plist.

Another way to get rid of the error dialogs is to disable the old-style auto save:

defaults write -app textedit ApplePersistence -bool false
defaults write -app textedit AutosavingDelay -int 0
