(Things you didn’t know they could do)

TextEdit EFX sm

Text Edit has been around since the beginning of Mac. It used to be Simple Text and had the .txt extension with few options. Since graduating to TextEdit and using the .rtf and .rtfd formats, it has learned how to do a lot more. It is a most useful tool along with it’s alter ego Preview, together they can manage multimedia in many forms as well as most other word processors in a pinch. I’ll touch on as many features as possible and demonstrate how they can be used. Most of these features have been buried in there since Tiger, but they do not get much attention.Meetings are held at

Dalo's World2

About Dale.
Dale has over 40 years experience in the Audio Visual business. As technical director of staging for corporate meetings in locations around the world and design and installation of multimedia board rooms, he has had the opportunity to set up, operate and troubleshoot a large variety of equipment under less than desirable conditions. The various voltages and signal formats involved in audio, video, data and power all need to come together through interfaces and adapters to go up on the screen and out over the audio system without hums and speckles that degrade the experience or the content. This background gives him keen insight on why things just don’t plug together and work all the time. When a new piece of software or hardware comes out touting ease of use, reliability, broad compatibility, plug and play, and low price, Dale sees it as an entertaining challenge to put it to the test, and he has the equipment and experience to do just that.
