Sometime recently some file type names have changed — not the file associations or default application, but the name of the file type itself. "Plain Text Document" has changed to "text", "Rich Text Document" to "rich text (RTF)", etc.
I did a
find /Applications -name \*.plist -type f -print0 | xargs -0 grep "rich text (RTF)" and got hits in:
which do indeed list a whole whack of lowercase filetype names along with the offending ones.
sudo find /Library -name \*.plist -type f -print0 | xargs -0 grep "rich text (RTF)" found (along with a bunch of "Permission denied"s):
Anyway...is anyone else seeing this? And/or see how it can be fixed/restored? Granted it's almost entirely aesthetic. But if aesthetics weren't important to me I wouldn't be using a Mac. :)
