10.4: Create new blank text files via contextual menu
Authored by: fds on Mar 28, '07 07:40:05AM

Huh? Am I missing something?

Isn't it much simpler to go to TextEdit - Preferences and set the default Format to Plain Text?

And if you do need rich text one in a while, you just use Format - Make Rich Text.

10.4: Create new blank text files via contextual menu

You might see your way as simpler, but people with years or even a decade of experience right-clicking the MS Windows desktop to create new files might prefer this method.

You don't even have to do that. Open TextEdit, and go to preferences. In there you can set the New Document preference to Plain Text.

Now whenever you launch TextEdit, it will open a plain text document. Just stick it in the Dock, and give it a click!

People really do find complicated ways to do simple things! :)
