Force the Finder to show text file previews
Authored by: SOX on May 12, '03 11:35:47AM

how is this different than using get-info and in the open-with dialog there's a setting to set the default on all files with that extension ?

Because the Finder shows a text file preview for all files it thinks are text, which happen to be files with either a .txt extension or a TEXT filetype. The Always Open With command doesn't set either of those.

I believe the Always Open With command changes the creator code (the program used to open the file) and not the type code which we need to change for this hint.
