Topic review


@bfly: What's wrong with the suggestions in my previous answer?

Ahoj! Still not possible to do this with custom commands? I think this is a very useful for editing config files and crontab.

Re: Internal editor command

Do you mean a "custom command"?

Yes, but in a new instance of WinSCP only. Use a custom command like:
cmd /c start "" "C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.exe" !S /edit "/path/to/file"

Alternatively use Files > New > File (Shift+F4) and type a path to the file. It will be kept in an edit history, so you can easily look it up in the future.

Internal editor command

Is it possible to open remote file in internal editor using commands?
I want to add a button to toolbar that opens remote file for editing without changing the currently opened path.
