The key improvement between
and TeachText was the addition of text styling.
could support multiple fonts and font sizes, while TeachText supported only a single font per document. Adding text styling features made
WorldScript-savvy, meaning that it can use Simplified and Traditional Chinese characters. Like TeachText,
was also limited to only 32 kB of text in a document, although images could increase the total file size beyond this limit.
style information was stored in the file's resource fork in such a way that if the resource fork was stripped (such as by uploading to a non-Macintosh server), the text information would be retained.
Apple has released the source code for a Carbon version of

superseded TeachText, which was included in System Software up until Mac OS 8. The need for
arose after Apple stopped bundling MacWrite, to ensure that every user could open and read Readme documents.
is the native text editor for the Apple classic Mac OS.
allows editing including text formatting (underline, italic, bold, etc.), fonts, and sizes. It was developed to integrate the features included in the different versions of TeachText that were created by various software development groups within Apple.
TeachText was later superseded by
, and with the arrival of Mac OS X, both were replaced by the TextEdit application derived from OPENSTEP.
In Mac OS X,
is replaced by the more powerful TextEdit application, which reads and writes more document formats as well as including word processor-like features such as a ruler and spell checking. TextEdit's styled text format is RTF, which is able to survive a single-forked file system intact.
The basic utilities installed by default with System 7 included TeachText (superseded by the more flexible
in later versions) for basic text editing tasks and reading readme documents. Also available on the additional "Disk Tools" floppy disk are Disk First Aid for disk repair and Apple HD SC Setup for initializing and partitioning disks.
TextEdit replaced the text editor of previous Macintosh operating systems,
. TextEdit uses the Cocoa text system to read and write documents in Rich Text Format (RTF), Rich Text Format Directory, plain text, and HTML formats, and can open (but not save) old
files. It also has access to the operating system's built-in spell-checking service. The version included in Mac OS X v10.3 added the ability to read and write documents in Word format, and the version in Mac OS X v10.4 added the ability to read and write Word XML documents. The version included in Mac OS X v10.5 added read and write support for Office Open XML and OpenDocument Text. The version included in Mac OS X v10.6 added automatic spelling correction, support for data detectors, and text transformations. The version included in Mac OS X v10.7 added versioning of files, and Autosave similar to iOS.
It can be considered similar to Windows' WordPad application. In later versions it also gained additional read only display capabilities for PICT files, as well as other Mac OS built-in formats like Quickdraw GX and QTIF, 3DMF and even QuickTime movies.
can even record short sound samples and, using Apple's PlainTalk speech system, read out text in English. Users who wanted to add sounds longer than 24 seconds, however, needed to use a separate program to create the sound and then paste the desired sound into the document using ResEdit.
"Fitter Happier" is a short musique concrète track that consists of sampled musical and background sound and spoken-word lyrics recited by a synthesized voice from the Macintosh
application. Yorke wrote the lyrics "in ten minutes" after a period of writer's block while the rest of the band were playing. He described them as a checklist of slogans for the 1990s, which he considered "the most upsetting thing I've ever written", and said it was "liberating" to give the words to a neutral-sounding computer voice. The band considered using "Fitter Happier" as the album's opening track, but decided the effect was off-putting.
An unusual feature of the Nisus file format was that all font and formatting information was saved in the file's resource fork, with the data fork containing only plain text. Thus, if the file were to be opened in another program on the Mac, or on a Windows PC, the text would be readable (although style information would be lost). This predates cross-platform file formats as used by word processors like Microsoft Word. Contemporary editions of Word had different formats between the Mac and Windows versions and required a translator if the file were to be readable at all. Using the resource fork to store style information was later implemented by Apple Inc. for the standard Macintosh styled text format as used in
Some text editors are small and simple, while others offer broad and complex functions. For example, Unix and Unix-like operating systems have the pico editor (or a variant), but many also include the vi and Emacs editors. Microsoft Windows systems come with the simple Notepad, though many people—especially programmers—prefer other with more features. Under Apple Macintosh's classic Mac OS there was the native
, which was replaced in Mac OS X by TextEdit, which combines features of a text editor with those typical of a word processor such as rulers, margins and multiple font selection. These features are not available simultaneously, but must be switched by user command, or through the program automatically determining the file type.
