I'am currently developing Java application with Eclipse IDE and having this folder named "workspace.dist". This contains the deployed portlet to be deployed to a framework. Now my problem is, Mac OS recognizes workspace.dist as TextMate extension (a text editor). For the mean time, I had to "Show Package Content" thru context menu to open this file.

So my question is if there a way to associate .dist extension as Finder?

Thank you!

  1. Quit TextMate and open /Applications/TextMate.app/Contents/Info.plist in a text editor.

  2. Remove the highlighted content from line 531 per the screenshot below:

  3. Log out and back in.

  • I did what you'd instructed but the "workspace.dist" still associated with TextMate. – Erieze Lagera Feb 18 '14 at 14:17
  • @Erize It should have worked… Reboot? – grg Feb 18 '14 at 18:46
  • I already did rebooting the OS but still no good. I've also already searched keywoard "dist" inside the TextMate's Info.plist and it has no result so I don't know why dist extension still associated with TextMate. – Erieze Lagera Feb 21 '14 at 5:53
