Pref Setter

Easy preference editing

Pref Setter is an application used to edit plist (Property LIST) files, geared towards viewing / editing Mac OS X's preference files. Very useful for setting those “hidden” preference settings that aren't available directly in an application.


Easy access to your preferences

Pref Setter makes accessing your preferences easy with the “Open Domain Quickly” window, listing your preference files and those in the /Library/Preferences domain.


Pref Setter makes your preferences easily searchable, with its Find panel which will search all of your preferences for a term, or within individual documents for a term via the document's search bar.

Drag & Drop / Copy & Paste

Pref Setter has comprehensive drag & drop / copy & paste support, with the ability to drag / paste partial plist strings or entire plist files onto any document window or tab.

Pref Setter also has the ability to drag / paste “defaults write....” strings onto any document window, tab, or the “Open Domain Quickly” window. It will then open up the preference file the defaults string points to (if not already open), and add / change the correct key. No need to take a trip to the terminal anymore!
