Edit button now suddenly brings files up as .html instead of .txt files, crap! (4 posts)

    I have been using TextEdit to modify .html files (not to use as a wysiwyg editor) with the edit button, but just this morning it started acting like a wysiwyg editor rather than a plain text editor, how annoying!

    How can I get the .html doc on the server to be editable via the Edit button as if it had been opened as a .txt file, and then auto-update the file on the server, just like it always had until today? What happened???

    p.s. yes i know the bias against TextEdit by Fetch, but I've not been using it to wysiwyg it, so please stay away from that topic- as far as I'm concerned this might as easily happen in any other editor, and would deter me from using Fetch at all, so I want it solved with what I have, since it worked just fine yesterday!

    Hi Dave,

    You should check your TextEdit preferences; TextEdit is in charge of deciding how to interpret the file.

    * Open TextEdit.
    * Go to the TextEdit menu, and choose Preferences.
    * Click the "Open and Save" tab.
    * Look at the "Ignore rich text commands in HTML files" checkbox.
    * If it is unchecked, check it.
    * Close the Preferences window.
    * Try editing with Fetch again and see if that fixes the problem.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Thanks,
