    The new version of Taco HTML Edit can now be used as an external editor for FTP clients:

    Is it possible for Fetch to add this editor to the Fetch preferences?

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the heads up. We'll look into adding support for Taco HTML Edit to the next version of Fetch.

    Hi,

    I should have mentioned this before, but with a few steps, you can actually use Taco HTML Edit 2.0 as an editor with the current version of Fetch. Although Fetch 5.3 and earlier will not automatically list it as an editor choice, you can set it as an editor for specific kinds of files using the Transfer Options pane of the info window.

    Follow these steps to set up Taco HTML Edit as your editor for a certain kind of file. These instructions assume you are using Fetch 5.

    1) Connect to your server, and find a file with the extension whose editor you want to change (e.g., for HTML files, find a file whose name ends in ".html"; for text files, find a file whose name ends in ".txt"). You may need to upload an example file if you do not know where one is located.
    2) Select the file.
    3) Click the Get Info button, or choose Remote > Get Info .
    4) Click the disclosure triangle next to the Transfer Options label at the bottom of the info window to display the Transfer Options pane, if it's not already displayed.
    5) Click the pop-up menu labeled "Edit files like this with"
    6) Choose the Other item at the bottom of the menu.
    7) Find and select Taco HTML Edit.

    From now on, any file with the same extension as the file whose transfer options you just changed will use Taco HTML Edit when you click the Edit button or choose the Edit menu command in Fetch.

    Repeat for as many file kinds as you like.

    More direct support for Taco HTML Edit will be available in the next version of Fetch, but I thought you might like to get started using Taco HTML Edit now.

    Please let us know if you have any questions.

    Thanks,
