Find Graphics in TextEdit .rtfd Files

Want to find the graphics in a TextEdit document in the .rtfd format? The document is actually a package - a special kind of folder that looks like a file. To see and extract just the graphics, Control-click the document and choose Show Package Contents. A new window opens showing you just the embedded images, along with a TXT.RTF file that contains the text of the file.

With 9.4.5, I lost the ability to select multiple thumbnails in the navigation panel and the ability for seach terms to consistently be highlighted in the text of the searched doc. I'm back to 9.4.4, and happy as a clam.
