I am running Lion (10.7.5) and TextEdit (v1.7.1) on MBP 15 inch Early 2011,
and do not experience the problem that you describe.

I agree very annoying. I use Textedit a lot for taking quick notes, amd now confronted with the dialogue box. Yes at the bottom left is a "new doc" button, but why change? SAnyone any ideas? I've looked at prefernces, but don't seem to be able to change anything??

It's because you've enabled iCloud and that's triggered TextEdit to start with this new open dialog.

Thanks very much. Glad to hear Mavericks has app by app selection. System wide was an idiotic forced choice. There should just be an option in TextEdit, check box, "Always open new doc" or "Remember my choice" - but Apple no longer thinks things through post-Jobs, what with my list of 30 critical functional bugs in iOS7 that are still unresolved after 4 updates. So sad the quality direction Apple has turned.
