I have been copying and pasting lots of contact info into a Textedit file. I have been saving as I go along and it saves as .RTF Now suddenly it says:

This document contains graphics and will be saved using RTFD (RTF with graphics) format. RTFD documents are not compatible with some applications. Save anyway?

I have not intentionally put graphics onto document. How can I find the 'graphic' and delete it?

Try showing package contents in Finder and deleting all the image files.

You can then either move the rtf file outside the rtfd folder, or open the rtfd file in TextEdit, duplicate it, and save it as rtf.
