    Changing default text editor...
    Hello.

    I recently got my first Mac, a Black Macbook, and am very happy so far.

    Is there a way that I can change the default text editor? It seems whenever I open a document in finder, or from a stack on the dock, it opens with TextEdit. I would like my docs to open with NeoOffice. I should say most of my documents are currently .doc, as I have just switched from a PC.

    It seems I can right-click on each document in Finder and set them individually to be opened by NeoOffice, but it would be easier if I could set NeoOffice as the default text editor.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks, J.

    Fixed.

    Finder > Right Click any .doc > Get Info > Opens With > Change to NeoOffice > click 'Change All'
