    Default Opening a PList
    I want to open a PList found in an App I downloaded from the appstore, when I try to open it I get this error. How do I fix it?

    Code:
    The document “The Name of This.plist” could not be opened. 
    
    Conversion of string failed. The string is empty.

    Mac OS X already comes with a software that can open up .plist files. Just double-click on the .plist and it should open up the software (Property List Editor).

    Guys, c'mon, i'm not a total nube. Property List Editor IS the application giving me that error. Something about this specific PList is different than the others I've edited. Is there some way to "decode" a PList or something?
