    It opened a .rtf as a regular text file. No idea why that happened though.

    Open the TextEdit > Preferences window.
    Look for a checkbox "Ignore rich text commands in RTF files".
    Make sure it's unchecked.

    There is a Format option Rich text vs plain text. Is it set to rich text?

    Far from here
    Uncheck the second tick box in this TextEdit Preferences window.
    (not the highlighted one)

    "Display RTF files as RTF code instead of formatted text".
