If you are on Mac, you have 2 main options:

- Use TextEdit which comes with MacOS -> but remember to go into Preferences and select "Plain text" and disable "Smart quotes"
- Install a good text editor like sublime, atom or VSCode.

I'd recommend the last one. Using homebrew it's very easy.

PS: try to avoid spaming posts in different forums and use comprehensive topic tittles next time.
My opinions are my own. I am just a thankful user of OpenMW with no affiliation with the dev team.
