This page is wrong:


Step #1 of the page about TetEdit is no longer true! Now when I open TextEdit I get an Open File dialogue instead of a New Document. WHY?!?!?! $%@%#^@&&@^#^


It is a pain in the butt to have to hit New Document every time when a new blank document used to just appear the second you opened TextEdit.


Another stupid "improvement?"

MacPro / MacAir, Mac OS X (10.5.4), everything Apple sells
