Why do exported RTF files open in TextEdit?

When running MovieLogger under Snow Leopard, you may find that due to important changes in the way the OS handles files with extensions, exported RTF files now open in TextEdit rather than Microsoft Word. This means that the header and footer information is no longer visible.

To restore the previous behaviour:

  1. Select an exported RTF file
  2. Choose File > Get Info or press Command-I
  3. In the "Open With" section, choose "Microsoft Word" from the popup menu and click the "Change All" button.
  4. Accept the confirmation message
  5. All RTF files will now be opened with Microsoft Word and the header and footer information will be visible again.
