TextEdit - You Hate It Or You Hate It With Passion

22-Apr-08

OS X's very own TextEdit. I thought it would prove (some day) to be a valuable program. But no. Years went by and nothing changed. It's as crap as it was when I first used it. The final bit was when I copy pasted something from two places into one TextEdit document. Two texts were […]
