TextEdit is a simple, open source word processor and text editor, first featured in NeXT's NEXTSTEP and OPENSTEP. It is now distributed with Mac OS X since Apple Inc.'s acquisition of NeXT, and available as a GNUstep application for other Unix-compatible operating systems such as Linux. [cite web |url=http://www.nongnu.org/backbone/apps.html |title=Backbone—A GNUstep based desktop environment |accessdate=2007-09-04] It is powered by Apple Advanced Typography and has advanced typography features not found in even high-end word processors such as Microsoft Word. [ [http://latourfl.com/panther/textedit.html Advanced Typography with TextEdit in Mac OS X] ]

It replaces the text editor of previous Macintosh operating systems, SimpleText. TextEdit reads and writes documents in Rich Text Format, Rich Text Format Directory and plain text files, Microsoft Word document format and HTML, and can open (but not save) old SimpleText files. It also has access to the operating system's built-in spell-checking service. The version included in Mac OS X v10.3 added the ability to read and write documents in Word format, and the version in Mac OS X v10.4 the ability to read and write Word XML documents. The version included in Mac OS X v10.5 includes read and write support for Office Open XML and OpenDocument Text.

ource code

Apple distributes TextEdit's source code as part of the documentation of its integrated development environment (IDE) Xcode. On the internet, the source code to a version of TextEdit enhanced to demonstrate the calling of Quartz Composer compositions from the Cocoa API can be found at [http://developer.apple.com/samplecode/QuartzComposer_WWDC_TextEdit/ Apple's developer website] .

Easter egg

The high resolution TextEdit logo for Mac OS X v10.5 (Leopard) features the words from Apple's Think Different (1997-2002) ad campaign:

Dear Kate,

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things.

Take care,John Appleseed
