BBEdit document state
Authored by: DavidShepherdson on Jul 14, '05 01:17:45AM

More recent versions of BBEdit (at least since version 8) store document state in the preference file instead of the document's resource fork, so this should no longer be a concern.

BBEdit document state

It is still a 'concern', because if you're not on an HFS volume, the type and creator code are also stored in the .DS_Store--it's not just the resource fork in there, but also meta data.

BBEdit document state
Authored by: derekhed on Dec 06, '05 02:41:03PM

I have turned off 'save document state' in BBEdit 8.2.4 and I still get the dot underscore files when saving to our Win2000 Server. Can anyone verify that this advice actually works for them?
