    Parent the name of the parent folder of the file If more than one file in the last has both the same name and same parent folder name the enclosing folders will also be shown as necessary to be able to identify the files uniquely Format the format of the property list either binary ASCII or XML Note that even though a file s format may be identified here it does not necessarily mean that the property list is valid Valid shows whether or not the property list is valid well formed To test property list validity use the Validate command available in the Browser menu A property list will have a question mark displayed in this column until it has been tested for validity Multi file searches If you have a large number of files in a browser you can use the browser s search features to narrow down the list and easily find the particular file you re looking for Type something into the search field at the bottom of the window and PlistEdit Pro will search the list of files for ones matching what you ve typed You can search in one of two ways either by the file s name or by its content chosen by clicking one of the radio buttons just below the search field When searching by content the search will open up all the property list files in the list and look for the given text within the content of the property list Clicking the Options button will display several ways to customize how it performs the search Search Scope this allows you to limit the search to either the keys in the property list or the values or you can search both at once Top level only if this box is checked the search will only check the items contained by the root of the property list otherwise it will search recursively down into all the items in the property list Recursive searching can be significantly slower especially for large property lists so checking this box will often speed up your search times Ignore case If checked the browser will perform a case insensitive search Invert found file set If this box is checked then instead of displaying all the files that do match the search it will instead show the files that don t match This can be useful when trying to find a file that s missing a particular key or value Search kind The pop up menu will let you select the context to search for the text in You can choose whether to only show files where the search text is found at the start of a key value at its end anywhere inside the key value or only when exactly equal to it Clicking the Save As Default button will save the current search options as the default ones to be used whenever a new browser is created Saving browser configurations Whenever you create a property list browser and add files or folders to it PlistEdit Pro remembers which files and folders you dragged into that browser You can later add or remove items by clicking the Edit Content button in the browser s toolbar After you have added or removed items PlistEdit Pro will update the file list by rescanning all the files and folders you ve specified After you ve configured a browser you can save that configuration so that you can later reopen that same browser and view the files contained in it For example if you are working on a project that uses a number of property list files you can save a browser that is set to browse the contents of your project folder Anytime after that you can then reopen that browser to edit any of the property list files in your project without having to find the individual files again You can click the Save Browser button in a browser s toolbar to save the current configuration of that browser under a name of your choice That configuration will now show up in the submenu of the Open Saved Browser menu item in the Browser menu and selecting it will restore the saved browser and rescan any folders it is set to browse You can also rename and delete existing browser configurations by selecting Organized Saved Browsers from the Browser menu The preferences browser Most OS X applications store their preferences in property list files making them easy to view and edit PlistEdit Pro offers a special property list browser that allows you to quickly locate and edit the preferences for many applications on your system The preferences browser works much the same as a normal property list browser but with a few added options In Mac OS X preference files are stored for the most part in a single folder at Library Preferences When you open up the preferences browser available through the Window menu PlistEdit Pro will scan your preferences folder for all the preferences that are stored as property lists and display them to you in a list You can also see the name of the application to which a particular preferences file belongs making it much easier to find the file you need for a particular application To edit a preferences file simply double click on it in the list In addition to the normal search capabilities of a property list browser the preferences browser offers a couple additional ways to narrow down the list of files you re looking at Clicking the checkbox titled Show only prefs for known applications will filter out any preferences file for which the system cannot find the corresponding application This can be useful for filtering out old preferences files for applications that are no longer on the system While most preferences are stored on a user by user basis some preferences can also be shared system wide These preferences are stored in Library Preferences and can also be viewed in the preferences browser by checking the checkbox titled Show system wide preferences at the bottom of the window The preferences browser also provides an additional column titled File Type which lets you see which preferences files are specific to the current user and which are system wide The toolbar buttons at the top of the window provide some addition useful functions that act on the preference file you currently have selected in the list Launch Application launches the application if one exists to which the selected preference file belongs Reveal In Finder reveals the selected preference file in the Finder Reveal Application reveals the application if one exists to which the selected preference file belongs Refresh List rescans the preferences folders and displays the latest state of the preference files Move To Trash moves the selected preference file to the trash Favorites PlistEdit Pro offers a favorites menu to which you can add your most frequently used property list files for easy access The Favorites menu is located in the File menu If you have a property list file open that you want to add to your favorites simply press Command T and the frontmost property list document will be added to the list For further management of your favorites list press Command Shift T and a property list browser will open up displaying your favorites list Just like in any other property list browser you can search your favorites list either by filename or by content The favorites browser also allows you to assign a keyboard shortcut Command 0 through Command 9 to the items in your favorites list To change an item s shortcut just choose one from the Shortcut column s pop up menu for that item s row You can also add files to your favorites list by dragging them into the favorites browser and you can remove an item by selecting it and clicking the Remove button in the browser window s toolbar Property list structure definitions There are many common uses of property lists in which the property list must be structured in a certain way For example when editing a scriptSuite file which is necessary for a developer to add Applescript support to his her application only a small set of keys are used and the values stored must conform to certain types To help create and edit lists with predefined structures such as this property list structure definitions can be greatly helpful Using a structure definition when editing a property list Using a structure definition when editing your property lists provides several additional enhancements and features Choosing from a list of available keys Some types of property list can involve a large number of different keys which can be difficult to keep track of and result in digging through the documentation trying to figure out what the exact key you need for a particular purpose is Structure definitions document the commonly used keys in certain types of property list files and allow you to select such a key from a list directly from the PlistEdit Pro interface rather than having to look it up in the documentation For example when editing an Info plist file PlistEdit Pro will already know commonly used keys such as CFBundleName NSPrincipalClass CFBundleDocumentTypes LSUIElement and so forth This functionality can be accessed in a few different ways When editing a key PlistEdit Pro will autocomplete the key as you type it based on the entries found in the structure definition for the property list you re editing A pop up menu is also provided next to the key when editing which you can click to view a full list of all the known keys for the dictionary you re currently working with The Add Sibling Key and Add Child Key items in the Operations menu also list any known keys and allow you to add a new item to the dictionary using a key that you select Human readable keys Structure definitions can provide plain english names for property list keys making it easier to tell what a particular key is used for For example instead of seeing NSJavaPath displayed for that key in an Info plist file you d instead see Java classpaths which makes it a little more clear what exactly the purpose of that key is Choosing from a list of allowed values Some property list keys only allow certain values to be entered for that key or at least there may be some small set of values that are very commonly used for a particular key Structure definitions can provide a list of such values and provide a pop up list and autocompletion when editing such a key For example when editing the CFBundleTypeRoles key of a document type dictionary in an Info plist file the structure definition provides a list of commonly used values for this key which are Editor Viewer Shell and None so that you don t have to remember these values or look them up yourself Additionally for some keys which require non string values the structure definition will display textual representations of these values which are much easier to choose from For example the LSUIPresentationMode key in an Info plist file requires a number to be entered for its value This number corresponds to the SystemUIMode typedef declared in MacApplication h in the Carbon framework Normally you would need to figure out what numeric value to use for a given mode e g 0 gives you the normal UI mode 1 hides the menu bar but not the dock 2 hides both the menu bark and the dock etc and enter that yourself Using a structure definition you will instead see choices such as Normal Content hidden All hidden etc and selecting one of those choices will set the numeric value to the appropriate number behind the scenes Default values Structure definitions can provide default values for particular keys and object types When you create a new object in your property list it will automatically be populated with a sensible default value rather than just being blank and leaving you to guess what type of information you might need to enter Also newly created dictionaries will be automatically populated with keys that are either required or present by default so you don t accidentally forget to include a required key for that dictionary Display type A structure definition can also specify that a particular item or key be displayed as a different type using PlistEdit Pro s formatters the same as you can assign using the View As submenu in the Edit menu For example if a four character code is being stored in a Number object as a 32 bit integer value the structure definition can specify that that value should be display using the OSType formatter This will result in you seeing the actual four character code rather than a very large plain numeric value which isn t particularly useful Note this functionality is only supported by PlistEdit Pro and not by Apple s Property List Editor or Xcode Identifying keys for dictionaries A structure definition can specify that the value stored under a particular key should be used to identify a dictionary making it easier to browse through a list of dictionaries to find the one you re looking for ßFor example when looking at the list of document types stored under the CFBundleDocumentTypes key each dictionary in that list has a CFBundleTypeName key which specifies the name of that document type The Info plist structure definition specifies this key as being the identifying key for document type dictionaries When you look at this list in PlistEdit Pro using the Info plist structure definition each document type s name will be displayed in the same row as the dictionary making it easy to find a particular document type without having to expand each dictionary looking for the one whose name matches what you re looking for This is similar to the functionality provide by the View By Subkey command only it s done automatically when viewing a property list when using a structure definition How structure definitions work A property list structure definition is made up mainly of a list of property list classes Each class describes a particular kind of property list object and how it should be displayed when editing Every structure definition has a special class named root which specifies what the root object of the property list should look like what keys it supports and so forth The root class then determines what classes should be used for its children The children s classes in turn specify what class should be used for their children and so on down the hierarchy When using a structure definition you ll notice that for many items instead of the basic types like Array Boolean etc you will instead see the name of the class that has been assigned to that item by the definition In the example above the Info plist structure definition s root class specifies that the object under the Document types key should be assigned the DocumentTypeArray class The DocumentTypeArray class specifies that all its children should be assigned the DocumentTypeDict class and then the DocumentTypeDict class specifies what should be used for its various child keys The most important piece of information for a class is what basic type should be used for property list objects that are assigned that clas This can be one of the seven basic property list types Array Boolean Data Date Dictionary Number or String as well as a Variant Dictionary type that will be explained a little later The root class is typically a dictionary though it can sometimes be an array as well Depending on what type of object a class represents the class will have different attributes that specify how that type of object should be treated when viewing and editing it Note that currently there is no way for one class to subclass another and inherit its properties Creating a structure definition If you wish to create your own custom structure definition simply choose New Definition from the Definition menu and a new document will be created with a single basic definition ready for you to edit When you ve performed your edits and wish to save the file will be saved by default in Library Application Support Developer Shared Xcode Plug ins This way they will automatically be loaded and usable by PlistEdit Pro at launch time Editing an existing definition PlistEdit Pro offers a full custom interface for editing property list structure definitions The easiest way to open an installed structure definition file is to go to the Definitions tab of the preferences window and double click the definition you would like to view edit The editor window can be divided up into four basic areas Toolbar The buttons in the toolbar allow you to manage the structure definitions stored in the file Files are stored as XML and are actually a subset of the Xcode plugin format Each plugin can store multiple structure definitions though many will only store a single one You can add new definitions to the file and delete existing definitions as well as switching which definition you want to edit using the pop up menu on the right Each plugin also has its own name bundle identifier and version number which can be editing using the Plugin Info button Definition info Each structure definition within the file also has a name and identifier The name is what is displayed in the menu when switching which definition you want to use when viewing a particular property list The identifier should be in the reverse domain name style and should be unique so that definitions can be told apart Property list classes This table displays the list of property list classes that make up the structure definition The plus and minus buttons below can be used to add and delete classes from the definition and selecting a class will display its details in the bottom half of the window Class detail This portion of the window displays the details for the selected class The controls displayed here will differ depending on the type of object represented by the selected element and are described later in this help document If you edit and save an installed structure definition the changes will take effect immediately in any open property list documents so if you re creating your own structure definition using PlistEdit Pro you can debug your changes without having to close and reopen a document or quit and relaunch PlistEdit Pro Arrays When selecting an array element you will see the controls above for editing the definition element Array children class Specifies what class each object in the array should be assigned For example the class for the CFBundleDocumentTypes array specifies DocumentTypeDict as the class to be used for its children This means that each child of the CFBundleDocumentTypes array will be assigned the DocumentTypeDict class so all the information specified by that class will be used when editing the dictionaries in that array Default array entries If you wish for newly created arrays of this type to be automatically populated with one or more objects you can specify how many objects and what class each created object should be here Dictionaries When selecting a dictionary element you will see the controls above for editing the definition element Default child class Allows you to specify what class should be used by default when creating a new child object for a dictionary of this type For example if you re editing an class for a dictionary that will contain boolean values you can select the Boolean class from this pop up and any new objects created in that dictionary will be booleans by default Default key name Similarly you can also specify what key string should be used for newly created children of the dictionary PlistEdit Pro uses New Item by default when creating but for example if you want all the keys for a dictionary to be reverse domain name style strings you could specify com mycompany mykey as the default key name which would give the user an idea of what form of key they should be using for this dictionary Identifying key Specifies a key of the dictionary whose value should be displayed in the Value column for the dictionary when editing a property list file For example specifying the CFBundleName key for dictionaries in the CFBundleDocumentTypes array in an Info plist file will display each document type s name in the row for that document type s dictionary making it easy to scan the list of document types to find the one you want Variant key Specifies a key to identify this element as being the one to use for a variant dictionary Variant value Specifies a value to identify this element as being the one to use for a variant dictionary Underneath those controls is a table that lets you specify how to handle one or more specifc keys stored in this type of dictionary Each row has the following attributes Key This is the dictionary key that you want to define behavior for Localized string This string if provided will be displayed in the Key column when editing the property list instead of the actual key This allows the definition designer to provide the user with a clearer meaning of the key s purpose than might be discernable from the raw key value Class This specifies what class the object stored under this key in the dictionary should be This is the main way that classes are assigned in a property list with multiple levels of hierarchy with each dictionary defining classe for its children based on their key Usage This defines how the key is used in the dictionary and can have four values Required the key must appear in the dictionary and will result in a warning if the user attempts to delete that key Default though the key isn t required it will appear by default when a new dictionary of this class is created Optional this key has meaning in the dictionary but is not required and will not be included in the dictionary by default Deprecated this key should no longer be used in this kind of dictionary Plain values When selecting a class whose type is a string number boolean data or date you will see the controls above which allow you to edit the class Default Value This allows you to specify a default value for property list objects of this type This value will be automatically filled in for any new object created of this type Placeholder If a placeholder value is specified here then if an object of this class in a property list has not had any value entered for it yet the placeholder value will be displayed in gray text in the Value column for that object This can be used to give the user a clue as to what type of information should be entered for that object without having to assign an actual default value to that object upon creation Default Display Type Specifies that this class of object should be display using something other than the default formatter For example if you re editing an element used for Number objects used to store four character codes you can choose the OSType formatter from the pop up menu here and any such object will be display by default as a four character code rather than a plain number This is equivalent to using the View As submenu in the Edit menu Note that this value only affects display in PlistEdit Pro and not in Xcode or Apple s Property List Editor Allowable Values For objects that are only allowed to be a specific number of values you can specify what the allowable values are for that object here Use the plus minus buttons to add remove items from the list and double click on the value display value to edit them PlistEdit Pro will provide a pop up menu for the object when editing the property list The entries you type in the Display Value column will be what shows up for the user to select from in the pop up menu but the entries in the Value column will be the value actually set in the property list when an item is selected Variant dictionaries A variant dictionary type allows you to treate a dictionary differently based on its content A variant dictionary type contains a list of one or more dictionary classes defined elsewhere in the structure definition When a dictionary s class is determined to be a variant dictionary PlistEdit Pro will search through the variants and try to determine which variant is most applicable to the dictionary This search is based on the Variant key and Variant value that is given for each dictionary class To determine which variant to use PlistEdit Pro evaluates each variant in order If the dictionary type specified by the variant has only a Variant key definied then if that key is present in the dictionary being viewed then that variant s dictionary type is used for the dictionary being viewed If the dictionary type specified by the variant has both a Variant key and a Variant value defined then the key must not only be present but the value stored under that key must match the Variant value for the dictionary type If a variant doesn t match the dictionary being viewed PlistEdit Pro moves on to the next variant If none of the variants match the dictionary is just treated as a plain dictionary As an example of how a variant dictionary might be used imagine you have a list of dictionaries and each dictionary has a key named class which specifies a class name for that dictionary For each possible class you could create a dictionary type that would define the keys and values that apply to that class For each dictionary type you would specify class as the variant key for that dictionary type and then the class name as the variant value Finally you would create a variant dictionary type and add a variant for each dictionary type you had created Then when one of these dictionaries was assigned your variant dictionary as its type its class value would determine which dictionary type was used for that particular dictionary Managing installed structure definitions Structure definitions were introduced by Xcode 3 0 and are implemented as Xcode plugin files Initially these were plain XML files with a xcodeplugin file extension but then starting in Xcode 5 they changed to being full fledged code bundles with an extension of dvtplugin PlistEdit Pro supports both types of plugins but can only read dvtplugin style structure definitions whereas it can both read and write xcodeplugin style definitions This means that definition files that ship with Xcode can be used by PlistEdit Pro but not vice versa Xcode stores its structure definition plugins inside the Xcode app application bundle in Xcode app Contents PlugIns and will also read dvtplugin style definitions stored in Library Application Support Developer Shared Xcode Plug ins PlistEdit Pro ships with several of its own built in xcodeplugin structure definitions which are located inside its own application bundle These structure definitions will only show up in PlistEdit Pro and not Xcode or Property List Editor PlistEdit Pro will also read definition files from Application Support PlistEdit Pro Structure Definitions which will be used as the default save location for new definition files created by you You can see what structure definitions you have installed by going to the Definitions tab in the preferences window of PlistEdit Pro All installed structure definitions will be displayed in the Definitions table on the left Note that a single plugin file can contain multiple definitions such PlistEdit Pro s built in definitions for Applescript scriptSuite and scriptTerminology files which are both stored in the same plugin file On the right you will see the following information for the selected structure definition Use for files with extensions If you want PlistEdit Pro to automatically use a particular structure definition for files ending with a specific file extension you can type the extensions you would like to use the selected definition into this field For example by default all files ending with the scriptSuite extension will be opened using the AppleScript Suite definition You do not need to include the character and you can type a comma to end one extension and start typing a new one Use file files with filenames Similarly you can type entire filenames into this field to have files with that name use the selected structure definition by default For example files named Info plist are automatically opened using the Info plist definition but other files that simply end in plist are opened without a definition Type This can be one of three values depending on where the structure definition is installed User Indicates that this definition is installed in the Xcode plugin folder located inside your home folder PlistEdit Pro Builtin Indicates that this definition is located inside the PlistEdit Pro application bundle You will typically not want to edit these files directly since any changes you make will be lost if you update PlistEdit Pro to a new version Note that these definitions will not show up for use in Xcode or Property List Editor If you d like to use a PlistEdit Pro definition in either program you can make a separate copy of the definition file in your home folder that Xcode Property List Editor will detect and use Xcode Builtin Indicates that this is one of Xcode s built in structure definitions It is not recommended that you edit these files directly since all your edits will be lost the next time you install an update to Xcode When editing one of these definitions you will be given the option to make a separate copy of the file in your home folder that you can edit instead Note that if more than one copy of a particular structure definiton is present based on the identifier field of the definition PlistEdit Pro will only list one copy of the structure definition Definitions installed in the user s home folder take precedence over PlistEdit Pro built in definitions which in turn take precedence over Xcode built in definitions Preferences PlistEdit Pro provides several ways to customize the program to the way you work You can access these preferences by selecting the Preferences menu item in the PlistEdit Pro menu or by pressing command comma General tab Default class for new objects Selects what type of object you would like to create when adding a new child or sibling to your property list Default property list format Selects what format XML ASCII binary or JSON you want newly created property lists to be stored in Ask to revert when file changes on disk When this option is enabled PlistEdit Pro will watch the files you have open to see if they have changed on disk since you last opened them When you bring PlistEdit Pro to the front it will automatically ask you if you want to revert to the version on disk for any files that have changed Enable autocompletion Enables the autocompletion feature of PlistEdit Pro which provides completion suggestions based on existing plist content and property list definitions Automatically check for updates Checking this box will make PlistEdit Pro check on the internet for new versions at regular intervals Checking the Check at startup You can also check for updates manually using the Check For Updates menu item Remember formatter type by key When enabled if you use the View As menu to view an item under a particular key of a dictionary as a different type PlistEdit Pro will remember the type you chose for that key and automatically display any items under that key as that same type For example if you choose to view a data object under the key NSAlias as an alias record PlistEdit Pro will then display all data objects it finds under the NSAlias key as alias records without you having to change each one manually Enable autosaving Enables in place autosave and Versions for plist documents If you don t want PlistEdit Pro to save changes you ve made unless you explicitly use the Save menu item you can disable autosaving Note that autosave is not compatible with PlistEdit Pro s ability to edit files that require admin privileges so having autosave enabled will mean you will not be able to authenticate in order to save root owned files Install Command Line Tool Installs the pledit command line tool Display tab Outline font Selects the font that the outline view uses to display property list content Click the Choose button to select a different font from the font panel Text font Selects the font that the text view uses to display property list content Click the Choose button to select a different font from the font panel Browser font Selects the font that property list browser use to display their file lists Click the Choose button to select a different font from the font panel Color XML tags Allows you to choose a color with which to color the tags in the raw text of an XML formatted property list Sort options Allows you to customize how sorting is done in PlistEdit Pro Case sensitive sorting will cause all uppercase characters to be sorted before all lowercase characters and enabling numeric sorting will cause any numeric values to be treated and sorted as numbers rather than as alphabetic characters JSON text formatting Allows you to specify whether you would like PlistEdit Pro to generated condensed JSON text i e with all whitespace stripped out or indented i e with whitespace and indentation included There are two separate settings for the formatting used in the plist document window versus the formatting used when actually saving the file For example this lets you view the text in PlistEdit Pro as indented to make it easier to read but save as condensed to have a smaller file size Definitions tab This tab displays all the structure definitions that are installed on your system Refer to Managing installed structure definitions for more details on this tab Browsing tab This tab contains settings that affect property list browsers When creating a new browser from a folder or adding new items to an existing browser window you can tell PlistEdit Pro what file extensions to scan the newly added folder for Only files that match an extension in the list will be added PlistEdit Pro can also read the plst resource from the resource fork of a file used by non bundled Carbon applications Checking the Scan resource forks checkbox will add any file that has a resource fork with a plst resource whose ID is 0 Be aware that enabling this option can cause the scanning process to take significantly longer Scripting PlistEdit Pro provides tools for automatic workflows with property lists through Applescript support and the pledit command line tool Applescript PlistEdit Pro allows you to automate tasks involving property lists by offering full Applescript support For more information on how to script PlistEdit Pro refer to its Applescript dictionary using Script Editor as well as the example scripts which can be found on the PlistEdit Pro website The pledit command line tool PlistEdit Pro also provides a command line tool pledit which allows you to open property lists in PlistEdit Pro from the command line and shell scripts You can open any number of existing property list files by passing them as arguments on the
