    I want to use BBEdit for OSX (there are 2 executables for bbedit 6, a os9 version and a OSX version). when Im in X and select "edit file with bbedit" it launches the os 9 version (which starts classic mode) I went into the prefrences under download and changed the "edit text files with..." to other and selected the osx executable but fetch keeps reverting to the os9 version.

    anyone know how to fix this? I dispise classic mode.

    I need to look into why that is happening. Fetch uses X's new Launch Services to start programs, and I'd think it'd know to launch the X version, but I guess not. If you have the X version of BBEdit already running does that work?

    Nope, everything is fine if OSX bbedit is already open.
