Macintosh SGF Notes

Setting Up Internet File Mappings for SGF on the Macintosh

If you do this, ".sgf" e-mail attachments will automatically be saved with the right creator & file type (and thus, the right icon).

  1. Open the Internet control panel.
  2. Click the Advanced tab.
  3. Choose File Mapping from the list at the left.
  4. Click the Add button. Wait for a list of applications to be generated.
  5. In the Extension box, type ".sgf" (without the quotes of course).
  6. From the Application list, choose Smart Go Board (or your favourite SGF viewer).
  7. Verify the File Type & Creator. They should be "TEXT" and "GoBd" respectively. I would think that the File Type would be "TEXT" for any viewer (but I could be wrong).
  8. Click the Show Advanced Options button.
  9. In the Description field, provide one (I typed "Smart Game Format").
  10. In the MIME Type field, type "application/x-go-sgf".
  11. Check Map Incoming and Map Outgoing.
  12. Click the Add button.
  13. Close the control panel.
