    Hello

    I have a problem.
    The applications Preview and TextEdit do not work. I can start both of them but as soon as I try to load or save a file they do not respond anymore.

    I´ve searched the Forum, but there is either nobody who had the problem before or I searched for the wrong keywords.

    I tried repairing permissions, but the problem is still there.

    Help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Greetings

    Try deleting the preference files for those apps. You find them in Home/Library/Preferences. The files you have to look for are: "com.apple.Preview.plist" and "com.apple.TextEdit.plist".
