View Full Version : Not Being Able to Save as Plain Text

25th February 2008, 07:00 PM
I have run in to a little issue here.

I was following laughingbird's guide http://forums.mactalk.com.au/showthread.php?t=44011 which worked perfectly though I had to make a conversion and use plutil to create/modify the plist files.

The job got done so there is no great push but I am wondering why I couldn't follow the guide. That being I couldn't use pages or text edit to save the file as plaintext with a filename of UIPhoneFormats.plist.

No mater how I tried (export/save as) I was confronted with the error message of "This file cannot be saved with a plist extenstion, save with a .pages extenstion" or "save with a .rtf extenstion", well errors to that effect anyway.

Any insight as to why this happened?

vi, vim, nano, pico etc will let you save something as .txt inside Terminal.

Can't answer your question though.
