Response to: Almost, But Not Quite: .htaccess - SOLVED!


I'm a huge fan of BBEdit. It only makes sense for a Mac application to default to Mac line feeds when it creates a brand new document. Note, however, that if you don't like this behavior (as I didn't), then you can tweak the "new file" settings. Under BBEdit 6.5, this is under Preferences > Text Files: Saving and Default Line Breaks.

Don't be so quick to blame BBEdit ;)

    About BBEdit... I cant save a file with a "." as the first character in the file name. i.e. I can save a file as "htaccess" but not ".htaccess". Is there some other option I need to change?

      This is addressed in the BBEdit FAQ at

      You might also want to look into TinkerTool, which will make "dot" files visible in Finder.
