    Hi Wolfking60

    I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble, the problem sounds similar to what other people have reported before. Could you please try the following:
    Remove the PyxelEdit folder located here: "/Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/PyxelEdit"

    About the .pyxel assigning, the application has it's own format which is called .pyxel. To be able to open .pyxel files, you might need to assign such files to Pyxel Edit, this however is not important atm. since you can't even get the program running.

    Can you see the toolbar on the left side? If you hit Cmd+N will it let you create a new document? If not please attach a screenshot so I can see what it looks like.

    You only need to assign the file type if you want to be able to double click .pyxel files to open them directly, instead of choosing open inside the application.

    Heh sounds like you figured it out. The PyxelEdit text you see on the gray background is just to indicate that it is not a canvas (the white square you draw on)
