Using Textedit On Mac


Convert rich text documents to other formats

Using Textedit On Mac Desktop

Answer (1 of 8): Two ways 1. Open your Application folder and type the letter ‘T’. That will get you near TextEdit in the list. (Do the same with the Applications icon in the Dock and you will be near TextEdit. Use the arrow keys to navigate.) 2. I use CMD-SPACEBAR to open the Spotlight search. From one of our websites, I have exported a CSV text file which seems to be encoded as 'Windows Latin 1' in Textedit jargon. When I set Textedit to open the file with that character encoding, all is fine; however, I cannot save it to 'Mac OS Roman' encoding. Sure, I’d much prefer that TextEdit run using a “single file” mode, but this isn’t a bad solution. Sadly, I couldn’t find any undocumented launch flags to make TextEdit run in single file mode and while it’s easy enough to write a Mac app that edits a single file at a time and quits on closing, it’s not a practical solution for.

With TextEdit, you can open and edit rich text documents created in other word processing apps, including Microsoft Word and OpenOffice. You can also save your documents in a different format, so they’re compatible with other apps.

Create and edit HTML documents

You don’t need a special app to write or edit HTML code—just use TextEdit. You can display HTML documents like you’d see them in a browser, or use TextEdit as a code editor.
