Chapter 17. Hacking Mac OS X > Rewriting the Words

17.4. Rewriting the Words

Mac OS X stores the text and settings of its menus, dialog boxes, and other elements in special text files called plist (for Property List) files. They sit in one of the three Library folders (in your Home folder, the System folder, or the hard drive window).

The easiest way to edit them is to use Apple's Property List Editor, a program that came on your Mac OS X Developer CD. Once you've installed your developer tools as described in Section 9.25.23, you'll find Property List Editor in Developer→Applications.
