Hi,

I think a fantastic feature would be the ability to edit a file with a program of your choice. For example, I would be able to open a file with any program from Notepad to Wordpad, with a dialogue in the right click menu similar to in Windows explorer.

There is a similar feature in the Mac program 'Transmit'.

Cheers.

You can configure as many editors as you like. Please read documentation.

Great! Should have read the docs, sorry.

Anyway, I still think it would be much more intuitive if [in the future] it opens as it does in Windows Explorer windows

Thanks.

Can you be more specific? What would be more intuitive? To provide the configuration option in context menu?

Yes, in the context menu. Im not sure how easy it would be to do that though...

I suppose another benefit would be that you can choose your program on-the-fly. Just a thought really.

Like this...
