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.

 
 

We offer a free weekly mailing of 5–10 of our top articles along with regular features, such as important software updates and worthwhile reading elsewhere on the Web. The Issue versions contain the full text of all articles. The Announcement versions contain only article titles, a brief summary, and links to the full articles. Both versions are available in plain-text and HTML versions.

Also, we fund TidBITS in part through a paid membership program, and TidBITS members can choose to receive new articles as soon as they are posted throughout the week, among much else. See the full list of TidBITS member benefits.
