Chapter 6. Working with Documents > Creating and Opening a Document

Creating and Opening a Document

A document is a file you create using a word processing program, such as a letter, memo, or resume. When you start TextEdit, a blank document appears in the work area, known as the document window. You can type information to create a new document and save the result in a file, or you can open an existing file (using the Sidebar and List or Column view ()) in various formats, and save the document with changes. You can also add pictures, movies, and files in your documents.

Create a Document

Open the Applications folder, and then double-click the TextEdit application.

If TextEdit is already open, click the File menu, and then click New.

To change the file format, click the Format menu, and then click Make Plain Text or Make Rich Text.

Type your text.

Press Return when you want to start a new paragraph.

When you're done, save and close the document.
