Changing your Preferences to Plain Text in Apple TextEdit

I recently had to create some PHP files to modify a script, the first time actually since switching over to the Mac. After some troubleshooting, I eventually discovered that Apple TextEdit was indeed formatting in Rich Text. I came across an article on Apple’s Support site, but noticed the screenshots were a bit outdated, here are some updated screenshots from TextEdit Version 1.6.

So, for creating Plain Text in Apple TextEdit 1.6, first open up TextEdit on your system (you will want to make these changes before working on any plain text files such as PHP, if you don’t, portions of the file could be in Rich Text Format).

1. Once the software is opened, go to the main “TextEdit” drop down menu and go to Preferences, or use the keyboard shortcut “command + ,”.

2. Select the Plain Text radio button and ensure the Wrap to page checkbox is deselected.

3. Click over to the Open and Save tab and deselect the Ignore rich text commands in RTF files.

Notes: If you want to revert back to the default settings, simply click Restore All Defaults at the bottom of the preferences window.
