Fixed an issue where the "ask to revert" message shown when a document is modified elsewhere could be displayed several times instead of just once. Improved display of floating point numbers to avoid showing unnecessary fraction digits. Sure someone like me who just dont want blindly follow this APPLEMUSTUPGRADE insanity obviously deserve to keep those bugs ad aeternum! THANKS

Didn't even open one plist-file of all I tried in OS X 10.9. No file opened, no error message, nothing. I don't have time for this. Half a point for supplying a demo at least.

In contrast PrefEdit from Marcel Bresink worked at first try. It's only about a third in price too.

If you're doing some serious business with Plist files then xcode can be cumbersome. Thankfully you don't have to suffer since there is PlistEdit Pro.

This truly is an amazing little piece of software. Especially useful for people who don't want to download Xcode (which is more than a gigabyte in compressed form), this product is far more useful than Apple's Property List Editor, as it show items in Binary (Standard Plist), ASCII, and XML formats. It only has competition from the freeware program Pref Setter, an application which seemingly lost support in 2008. While Pref Setter has a more "user-intuitive" interface, it is lacking in real features, such as changing the format. In a nutshell, if you like your tools to be weak, obsolete, but nice-looking, sure, keep your money and use Pref Setter. However, if you're looking for something more powerful that is getting updates more regularly, pitch in the towel and buy PlistEditPro. For $30 USD, it's a really good buy. I am aware that the last update for PlistEditPro was Halloween of 2009, but the developer, Brian Webster, delivered an update for another one of his applications this past November. Another feature that I failed to mention earlier is that PlistEditPro has AppleScript support. This is very useful for parsing a .plist file, except it is possible to use System Events to accomplish the same task.

Check out Pref Setter, it's comparable to PlistEdit Pro except that it's free.

With every copy of Mac OS X comes Apple's Property List Editor (install the developer stuff). I guess, comparing the features of both apps, it does the same, oh, and it's free.

Does the free Pref Setter do the same thing? I honestly don't know. I use Apple's free program, but I remember coming across Pref Setter awhile back. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/17002/pref-setter
