PrefEdit 3.4 (Mac OS X) | 15MB
PrefEdit is a utility that allows you to inspect and edit all preference settings for OS X applications. 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 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.
WHAT'S NEW Version 3.4:
Multi-line string values used in property lists or preference domains are now shown in bold type.
When saving edited preference values, the domain window will now monitor when OS X has registered this change in its preferences subsystem.
The button to launch applications associated with a preferences domain was moved to the right edge of the window.
Optimized behavior on specific operating system versions where the system could overwrite changes to the preferences database after the user had saved a property list containing preference settings.
Corrected a compatibility problem with sandbox-protected applications that use symbolic links for their main preference files.
Corrected a problem with the display of registered legacy preferences for locale support under OS X 10.9 or later.
Ensures compatibility with upcoming operating system versions.
