Topic "editing multiple files, using external"

Author Message


Hello people

I hope you can help me.
I am using WinSCP 374 and as external editor TextPad 473.
If I open two files to 'edit' everything is fine. Both files get open and I can edit both files without a problem. But if I use 'doubleclick', mean 'open', what is my preferend way, the opening of the second file cause the problem that the first feels closing and bring an error to me
"can't remove temporary..."

In WinSCP I check
"mutilple files,.."
"external editor.."
"editor open multiple...(process)"

I don't want to use 'muliple instances' because I love tabbed windows.

In the forum I found a thread includes this:
... It would be nice if you had an option to "Use Edit as Default command" instead of Open. I usually double click if I want to edit a file.

This will help much I think, but maybe this is already included and I don't find it....
I hope you can give me a hint to solve my problem.

Greetings... Mathias

You must use edit function to make "editor open multiple... process)" take effect. When using double click, WinSCP does not know what application is executes and if that application "opens multiple files in one process".
