would like more patterns for custom commands

I'd like to be able to create a custom command that calls a local (windows) editor but includes the remote host name and file path in the command. I'd use this to open remote files in my editor using it's sftp capability, with a command line that looks something like this...

c:\theditor\edit.exe sftp://host.intranet.com/data/file.txt

I'd replace host.intranet.com and /data/file.txt with the (new) patterns available in custom commands.

I know it's possible to set up an external editor so WinSCP would copy a file locally and the editor could open it, but then I lose functionality I'd like to have.

I feel like this is a feature that'd be used by other folks also.

Thanks for a great and useful product.

This feature has been implemented already. It will be included into the next major release.
