PrefEdit 1.2 reviewDownload
PrefEdit is a utility that allows you to inspect and edit all preference settings for Mac OS X applications.
PrefEdit is a utility that allows you to inspect and edit all preference settings for Mac OS X applications. (Note that this is different from the "System Preferences" application which controls the operating system settings only.) The settings are displayed in a browser and can be edited by simple point-and-click operations. You can also do a full-text search on all settings, or clean up unused entries of applications that have been uninstalled.
PrefEdit can access all preference settings of "well-behaved" Carbon and Cocoa applications. Older Mac applications running in the Classic environment used a totally different system for storing preference settings. The settings of such programs do not appear in PrefEdit.
WARNING: If you edit, add or delete preference values of application programs or the Mac OS X operating system, you should know what you are doing. Inappropriate values can cause serious malfunctions in the system which could destroy important data or create other unexpected effects.
Corrected compatibility problem with Mac OS X 10.1 where editing a value and then selecting another entry could unintentionally copy the edited value to the newly selected entry.
