Mac TextEdit FIX for “You Don’t Have Permission” to Open Document


Have you ever had this problem? You go to open a text file on your Mac and you get a message that says “You can’t open this document, you don’t have permission.” You check the settings and everything looks fine. But the damn file won’t open.

I was frustrated by this same problem and finally found the perfect fix – a solution that works.

I just had to find and delete the TextEdit.plist file.

Give this a try and let me know if it works for you.

  1. Ive only had my MacBook Air 1 month ! thank you . But as soon as I closed Textedit when you said too- it was fixed at that point . so weird!

  2. You only have to Force Quit and restart TextEdit to "solve" this but it's not a permanent solution, it comes back after a couple of days, arghhhhhh!
