Opening files in external editors

EagleFiler 1.4.2 is almost perfect for my needs.

For opening files in external editors, I’d like the option to open files with editors other than the default, like the “Open With” option in the finder. Either a right click option when choosing a file from the list or an option click when clicking on the “Open” toolbar button would work for me.

Is this possible?

It’s not currently possible (except via AppleScript), but this is a feature I’m planning to add. Of course, you can change the default editor (for a particular file or a whole kind of file) from the Finder’s Get Info window, and you can drag and drop onto the Dock to open a file using a particular application.

I didn’t know about drag and drop to the dock. That’ll work for now.

Thanks for the quick reply!

EagleFiler 1.5 adds an Open With menu.
