#8487 closed defect (fixed)

Cannot edit file with unknown type/extension

Reported by: yuan yuan Owned by: dkocher
Priority: normal Milestone: 4.6.2
Component: core Version: 4.6.1
Severity: normal Keywords: Cannot edit file
Cc: Architecture: Intel
Platform: Mac OS X 10.7


I noticed recently, cyberduck no long open file with unknown type/extension using default text editor. It can still edit the common file types without problem but for many text files (such as the system log file with some unusual extensions), the edit button is grey out, which is really inconvenient. I miss the feature in the older version that all files (including those with unknown extensions) can be readily edited. Could you add the feature back? Thanks!
