The New version of TextEdit for Mountain Lion is totally ****ed Up,
How do you roll back to the old version,

first of all, you have to click twice to open a new document!

then when you go to Save As, it defaults to iCloud!
----Like i wanna store my personal **** on somebody else's server..!


totally sucks! I need the old version of Text Edit.. Thanks

What do you mean by click twice to open a new document?

Also you can change the default save location to be local instead of iCloud.

Also how do 1 extra click in two places make the app ******** up?

Agreed, Textedit is one of the many casualties of post-Jobs updates. It used to be a low-bandwidth application that opened a document instantly, putting it at your disposal for whatever whim you need it for. Need to write down a phone number real quick? Got a quick idea you feel like jotting down? It presented itself as readily as a notebook on your desk. Now it's as slow to open as Pages, literally! (I timed it!) Where's Apple's good old minimalism? I only updated to Lion because of compatibility issues. If not I would've stuck with the real, Stevian Apple.
