Editors' Review

+

PlistEdit Pro allows you to edit and control your PLIST files in OS X. PLIST files are "property list" files, and contain a great deal of information regarding program and operating system settings. By editing the PLIST files directly, you gain more control over your computer.

Pros

Excellent help file: PlistEdit Pro's help file is clear and well-laid out.

Clean interface: The interface is clean and modern looking.

The preferences browser: PlistEdit Pro's preferences browser helps find those files you wish to work on. You can also save your searches to recall things at a later date easily.

Cons

Lack of warnings: Some warnings for the uninitiated could be helpful, as working with PLIST files is above many people's heads.

Bottom Line

If you need to work on your PLIST files, this app is one of the best ways to do so. It is easy to use, has a great help file, and does everything it aims to well.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of PlistEdit Pro for Mac 1.8.

"Simply no alternatives to PlistEdit Pro"

June 05, 2006  |  By LuchsEterna

 |  Version: PlistEdit Pro 1.2.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
If you have to deal with plists (as a programmer/developer -- as a sysadmin -- as someone who knows about the advantages of tuning your system and apps -- for troubleshooting), and you haven't worked with PlistEdit Pro yet, you should try it. The sooner the better.

Feature set and quality of implementation are above average. Editing plists is fun and easy, just as it should be.
For me, PlistEdit Pro's AppleScript support is very welcome, and now it even has a command line tool.

Thanks, Brian, for the fantastic work.

"What Apple's Plist Editor should have been..."

March 05, 2004  |  By HCRefugee

 |  Version: PlistEdit Pro 1.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is a well conceived utility. All the editing functions I wished I had with Apple's editor are present. I especially like the "New Child of Type..." and "New Sibling of Type..." commands. A must have for developers (though perhaps better priced at $20).
