Thread: Text Viewer
11-27-2006, 06:42 AM #1Text Viewer
I'm looking for suggestions for a simple text viewer for OS X - just for reading .readme's etc. OS X seems to default to using TextEdit, but I don't really like using an editor just for viewing - there's always the chance of accidentally overwriting a file - I want something which just displays the file.
I'm a recent convert to the Mac, having used an Amiga for many years, and got used to using programs like Multiview which used a datatype system to automatically recognise and open text, graphic and audio files for viewing, so any Amigans will know what I'm after ;-) Is there a Multiview type program for OS X?

I haven't got my mac with me to check, but could you set text files to open in Preview by default?

I've just come across PageSector, which is a text file viewer/reader with built in tracking and bookmarking. Apparently it's built for people who use long strategy guides for gaming, but I might use it myself for development documentation ...
