Choose an editor ?

#1 Post by gordonisnz » 2016-08-12 21:54


On the right side of the screen, I have the files on the server. on the left, i have the files on my PC.

When i edit/open the files on my Pc it usually opens in one type of editor.. notepad (for txt files)

i was wondering, if its possible, to allow an option to choose which programme i want to open the files with. Ie choose at the time of each file open.

basically, if i have textpad / notepad open, & i want to edit/open a second fie, it opens the notepad over/top of my other file.

what i want, is to open 1.txt in notepad, and 2.txt in textpad (for example), so that i can view each file on the same screen, side-by-side at the same time, in two separate editors.

can this be done in Filezilla, or is this a general PC issue / question?

Unfortunately no, there is no such option.
