question for mac users - textEdit

jannaz_gwMarch 20, 2011

Is there any way to change the name of a document in TextEdit? I looked in textEdit help and came up with zilch.

Thanks,

Jann

I presume you the file name? There's a couple of ways. In Finder, highlight and wait a second a click the name again. The name will be highlighted and you can change it. You can also, in Finder right click on the document and then choose "Get Info" (which is a lot like properties in Windows). The name is about halfway down and changeable. In Text Editor you can also just choose "Save As".

"Save As" did the trick!
