PlistEdit Pro is the most advanced property list editor written for Mac OS X. Property list files are used throughout Mac OS X, and with PlistEdit Pro, users can easily change these files and exert finer control over their systems. You can use PlistEdit Pro in your development work, and its built-in preference file browser lets you explore and tweak your system's settings to your heart's content.

Some of PlistEdit Pro's features include

  • Full drag and drop and copy/paste support
  • Full keyboard navigation of the interface
  • The ability to view and edit a property list both in an outline and as raw text
  • Extensive Applescript support, for automating processes involving property list files
  • Property list definitions, which make editing common forms of property lists less cumbersome
  • Full multi-level undo support
  • Powerful find/replace capabilities
  • A built-in window to browse through your preference files
  • Customizable fonts

What is new in this release:

  • Updated Sparkle framework to fix security vulnerability
  • Added a preference for whether to create a new document when activating PlistEdit Pro
  • Improved documents updating to reflect recent changes in their structure definition
  • Added a button to show NSURL resource values stored in bookmark data objects
  • Resizing a structure definition window smaller will no longer collapse any of its table views
  • The outline view no longer loses focus after pressing return to change a key or value
  • Prevent entering special characters when modifying file extensions for structure definitions
  • Fixed an issue with reading system preferences in /Library/Preferences

What is new in version 1.8.2:

  • Fixed a crash that occur when changing fonts in the preferences window
  • Fixed a crash that could occur on El Capitan when closing a document
  • Fixed a bug where the "Replace" button in the find bar wouldn't replace
  • If performing a find and replace results in an invalid value (e.g. an unparsable date), we now display an error message instead of doing nothing
  • We now install the pledit command line tool in /usr/local/bin, as per new requirements in El Capitan
  • Fixed a bug where changing an object to a different class would not work while the object's value was still being edited
  • Fixed an issue where folders/packages could no longer be dropped on the dock icon
  • Fixed a bug where reordering items could lead to a crash

What is new in version 1.8.1:

  • Changed claimed file types to prevent PlistEdit Pro document icon from appearing on generic documents in the Finder
  • Fixed a crash that could happen when creating a new plist object
  • Fixed a crash when using the Launch/Reveal Application buttons in the prefs browser
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when closing a document
  • When selecting a find result inside a long key or value, we now scroll left/right within the cell to show the selection
  • You can now double click the splitter to collapse the text view
  • Type ahead selection now ignores the value column and only looks at the key column
  • Fixed a crasher when using the "View by Subkey" menu command
  • Prevent the outline view from scrolling to the top after saving a document

What is new in version 1.8:

  • PlistEdit Pro now requires OS X 10.9 or later
  • We now prevent changing the class of the root dictionary when editing a preferences file
  • Saving preferences plists on Mavericks and later now pushes changes to CFPreferences when appropriate
  • We can now read Xcode 5/6 structure definition files
  • Removed the autocompletion feature, due to buginess and lack of time to fix it
  • We do a one time "forgetting" of font prefs when launching on Yosemite, to ensure that new system fonts are used where appropriate. If you customized your fonts previously, you may need to reapply those changes.
  • Adding a preference to enable or disable autosaving
  • When editing number values, we now omit the thousands separators to make copying values to other programs easier
  • We now automatically save the window configuration used when opening documents, rather than having an explicit "Save Window Configuration" menu item
  • We now save and restore the state of the "Show Raw Keys and Values" setting when opening documents
  • The "Paste as Child" command will now insert a copy into each selected object when there is a multiple selection
  • We now enforce that the root object of a JSON file is either an array or dictionary
  • Switching to save as JSON in the save panel no longer appends an extra .plist extension to the saved file
  • Fixed a bug where PlistEdit Pro could hang after trying to save a document with a syntax error
  • Fixed a crasher when re-reading a changed structure definition file from disk
  • Find/replace is now done using find bars in the outline/text views, rather than a separate find panel
  • Elements in a structure definition can now be dragged to reorder them
  • Save panel no longer tries to append a .plist extension when the default file format is JSON
  • After deleting an object, we now select the adjacent object rather than having an empty selection
  • Find/replace now works properly with localized key names when using a structure definition
  • Removed the preference to have the OS write prefs plists as XML, since it'''s no longer supported
  • Fixed a hang/crash when performing a "Replace All" where the find string is a substring of the replacement string
  • Fixed an issue where the pledit command line tool would not open PlistEdit Pro properly
