Editing ASP files (4 posts)

    When trying "Edit" of a remote ASP file, it's telling me that "no image editor is available".
    In "obscure" panel i don't have an option to choose anything.
    Since ASP is not an image file, I need it to automatically open with BBEdit.

    Hi,

    First, make sure that you have BBEdit installed, and that you have opened it at least once.

    Then please try the following:

    * Connect to your server.
    * Find and select a .asp file (I'm assuming that's the extension these files have).
    * Click the Get Info button.
    * Click the triangle next to the words "Transfer Options" to display the Transfer Options pane.
    * Click the "Edit files like this with" menu, and choose "Other."
    * Find and select BBEdit.

    Then try to Edit the file, and it should open in BBEdit.

    Let us know if this does not fix the problem.

    If BBEdit is installed, normally it should be listed in the Obscure Preferences pane, and we can provide instructions on how to fix that if you want, but I wanted to address your immediate problem first.

    Thanks,

    That worked. Thanks.

    "Get info" is a rather obscure name for an option changing selection. Never even bothered to see what's there ;)

    Hi,

    We're glad to hear that worked, thanks for letting us know.

    As far as the location of that option... where possible, we've tried to make Fetch work like the Mac OS X Finder. In the Finder, you use Get Info to change which application files open with. So, in Fetch, you use Get Info to change which application to open or edit the files with.

    I hope that makes sense!

    Best,
