I have several TXT files I have that track some info for me.  Used to be, like in any OS, I could just double click it and viola, there it is in the text editor.  Ever since Mountain Lion, I open it and it opens fine, then on TOP of that I get ANOTHER open dialog box from text edit with the finder window to let me pick a text file to open.


I ALREADY opened the file I want so i certainly don't need another unasked for dialog box to open every time.  Same thing with PDF's.  Apparently just about everything that opens with preview or text edit does this.


I must be missing something since this clearly shouldn't be default behavior.  Anyone have something somewhere I've missed that will stop text edit or preview from prompting me for a file location to open when I've already opened the file I wanted in the first place?


Thanks for any insight.
