IDE on Mac Issue
New here - please excuse my noob question as I try to work through tge "Getting Started" book examples.
I have installed the IDE on a MacBook Pro; it talks to my shiny new Uno, downloads the provided examples. However when I try to create my own, or edit some variable, I can't edit the text area. I suspect file permissions so opened everything up for read,write, execute.
If I open and edit the sketch file in an external editor, save, then use the "open" on the IDE, it reads the file fine, runs verify fine, downloads to board and runs. But I still cannot edit the text within the IDE. I can live this way but suspect I have made some simple install mistake.
Any suggestions appreciated.
