Why do my Nisus documents open in TextEdit using OS X 10.6?

Prior to Snow Leopard, files that were created in Nisus Writer Express or Pro would always reopen in the originating application.

However, Apple has changed this behavior in 10.6. All RTF files, regardless of where they were created, will open in a single application. By default the Finder is configured to use TextEdit. However, this behavior can be changed in a few easy steps.
  1. In the Finder, single click a Nisus Writer RTF file.
  2. Choose the menu File > Get Info.
  3. Under "Open with" choose Nisus Writer.
  4. Click the "Change All" button.
  5. All RTF files will now be opened by Nisus Writer.
