Fetch & Smultron (External Editor Question) (3 posts)

    Today I set up Smultron as my external HTML editor in Fetch, however, while reading Smultron's FAQ I found this:

    "You can usually decide which program should be an external editor in the FTP-programs and if you choose Smultron and then choose to open the file in the external editor it opens in Smultron, and then when you save the file in Smultron it is automatically uploaded to the FTP-site."

    Does this work with Fetch? It woudl be a fantastically easy feature if it did, would make things wonderful, lol. If anyone has done this with Smultron(or any other HTML editor you use with Fetch), please let me know! Thanks!

    Yes, this works with Fetch. To make sure you've set it up properly:

    * Connect to you server, and select an HTML file on the server.
    * Click the Get Info button in Fetch.
    * In the Transfer Options pane, choose Smultron in the "Edit files like this with" pop-up menu.
    * Close the Get Info window.

    Then when you want to edit an html file and save it back to the server automatically, select an HTML file and click the Edit button in Fetch. The file will open in Smultron, and when you save it, the changed file will be automatically uploaded back to the server.

    You can also use the Fetch Get Info window to change Fetch's behavior so that when you double-click on a file, it will open in the editor instead of being downloaded.

    For more information, search for "Edit" in Fetch Help - you'll see several topics related to this feature of Fetch.

    Please let us know if you have further questions or run into any problems. Thanks,
