10.4: Convert new plist files between XML and binary
Authored by: timkingman on May 03, '05 03:00:09PM

The binary plist format isn't new, but it is now the default with 10.4. Property List Editor opens both kinds, which may be easier than a text editor for some needs.

10.4: Alternatives to PropertyListEditor
Authored by: mgharris on May 05, '05 04:45:30PM
The trouble with Apple's PropertyListEditor is that it has no 'find' facility, much less search-and-replace, so I've usually looked at plist files in TextEdit or SubEthaEdit . The 'switch' to binary forced me to look for alternatives. I found PlistEdit Pro , which seems to do the job nicely, but costs $24.95. Anyone out there have another favorite?
