Hi,
Just downloaded 3.7.4 (build 271). Running Windwos NT4. I Can't get external editor to edit multiple files at once. Always displays only last file of set. External editor = GVIM. Happens with Word as well?

Have checked
"Multiple files, use background..."
"External editor open multiple files in..."

Also on startup get a debug(?) message "Directory '2" Acknowledge and startups OK.

Open a log window and only the last file of a multi selected group is transfered!!!

Only the focused file is loaded to editor, not all selected.

This is just to allow you to edit multiple files at all. If you uncheck it you won't have a chance to load second file to editor.

This is discussed in the documentation

Please post a log file.
