Allow giving a name to external editors

Hello,

First thanks for your software which is very useful for me everyday.

One missing feature in my day to day work, is the ability to give a custom name to the external editors.

Indeed, for the moment, the name of the external editor (which is shown when right clicking a file in Edit sub-menu) is derived from the executable name, it's great but not sufficient because I configured two time the same editor but with another set of command line flags (for information one for remote editing all files in the same instance and one for creating a new instance of the editor). To workaround this leak, I have to remember that the first Gvim is for remote and the second for no-remote.

A great GUI improvement will be to allow giving a custom name to the editor (why not defaulting it to executable name).



Thanks in advance,

Re: Allow giving a name to external editors

Thanks for your suggestion.
Will see if more people ask for this.

Meanwhile you can create a copy of the gvim.exe to distinguish them.
