    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.

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

    Hey, Zaty

    That did the job.
    Thank you very much. I´m glad it was that easy.
