I have a file that was imported into DT, and I would like to change its default type. It is a text file that, when imported, had a file extension of .DAT. It is a tab-separated data file. DT thinks it is a QuickTime file and tries (and of course fails) to play it.
I would like to change the file type, preferably to a text file but Excel/spreadsheet is okay too. But I can’t figure out how to do that. I’ve tried the following:
- changing the file name to add “.TXT” has no effect
- revealing in Finder and changing the filename means that DT no longer can find the file
- I can’t seem to edit the “Path” property in the file info dialog box to point to a new file
What’s weird is that previewing the file (by hitting spacebar) does display the file text, though the preview pane itself does not display the file.
