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.

 
 

BBEdit 10.5.1

Send Article to a Friend

Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 10.5.1, a maintenance release devoted exclusively to fixes after the recent release of 10.5 (see “BBEdit 10.5 Adds Versions and Brings Web Sites into Projects,” 4 December 2012). Amongst the voluminous bug squashes listed in the often humorous release notes, the update ensures the Markup menu’s H1 through H6 commands render the correct heading level, fixes a bug that would reinstall command line tools if they were already present and up to date, adjusts behavior for the clippings system to avoid a crash at startup, corrects line spacing for printed documents, and fixes a bug in which attributes couldn’t be removed from existing markup by using the Markup Builder panel. ($49.99 new from Bare Bones or the Mac App Store, free update, $39.99 upgrade from pre-10 versions, 12.6 MB)

Check out the Take Control ebooks that expand on the topic in this article:
