can not change the name of gitignore.txt to .gitignore on mac OS
searching about this issue I was not able to find a solution for this problem. Any ideas....
I get this message on mac: you can't use a name that begins with a dot ".", because these names are reserved for the system. Please choose another name.

If you haven't already just copied the content and pasted it in a new .gitignore file, try going into your terminal to the folder where it's located and doing
mv gitignore.txt .gitignore, that should work.
