Getting To Unsaved Text Edit Documents Remotely

· by Ivan · Read in about 1 min · (72 Words)

Yesterday I made some quick notes in Text Edit on Mac OS X, then left work without saving. Later I wanted to remotely access those notes, with only SSH access to my Mac. It turns out you can get to open but not-yet-saved Text Edit documents - they are auto-saved in ~/Library/Containers/ Information as .rtf files. I think it auto-saves in RTF format to retain formatting until you actually save the document.
