Use TextEdit in native Full Screen mode
Authored by: Sesquipedalian on Oct 01, '13 12:11:26AM

A couple of points that should be noted, especially for anyone planning to replace the stock version of TextEdit with their modified version:

1. Your modified version of TextEdit will have a different bundle identifier than the stock version unless you correct it before building and running the application in Xcode. If you plan to replace the stock version, you should fix this, or else many functions on your computer that normally sent a file to TextEdit to be opened may break. You can do this quite simply. Just click on the top level of the Xcode project, find the place that defines the bundle identifier as "", and change it to "".

2. Your modified version of TextEdit will not be sandboxed, and will not provide access to Documents in the Cloud. The Open dialog will revert to its pre-Documents in the Cloud version, and TextEdit will open a new blank document by default when launched instead of showing the Open dialog by default. (Also, TextEdit's support files will be stored in various appropriate locations within ~/Library instead of all within ~/Library/Containers/ Whether this is a feature or a drawback is up to you to decide.
