    Found an interesting bug in TextEdit. Default window size and everything. Was using the number-list feature. The line came to the end of the window, but when I typed a space it went back up the the previous line and back one word.

    Insertion point redone in red to show up better. Pretty odd.

    Try to reproduce it, and send a email to apple explaining the bug. I'm sure they have a but email address, or the ability to report on built somewhere into Mac OS X.

    The feedback page does not include TextEdit. Doesn't have Safari either, interestingly enough.

    I have the file, saved at the point where the bug occurred. I can upload it if people wish to see it.

    Safari has bug-reporting built-in, a vestige from the beta days. Safari menu-->Report bugs to Apple.

    As for TextEdit.... perhaps try the OS X feedback page, as it is a default app?

    Safari should still have a feedback page. I know about the bug reporting, but what if I want to ask for drag-able tabs and the ability to save all open tabs in a window? Those aren't bugs, but requests.

    TextEdit... I'll try the OS X feedback page. I can understand why it doesn't have its own feedback page, on account of the simplicity and size, but it would be nice to have a way to submit feedback on "Other Apple Applications". Feedback, eh?
