    77You can edit a file just as a local file by clicking the Edit toolbar button or by choosing ''File → Open'' in Editor. The file will be downloaded to the user's temporary directory and opened with the preferred editor. Set your preferred editor in ''Cyberduck → Preferences''. The file will be uploaded to the server everytime you choose ''File → Save'' in the Editor application. The file is not changed on the server if you just close the document without saving.

    1313The default editor of a file is selected using the default application for a given file type set in the Finder.app (See ''File → Info'' for a given file type). If the default application is not one of the supported editors, the editor chosen in the Preferences is used instead.

    1515Select ''Always use default editor'' in ''Preferences → Editor'' if you always want to use the default editor set regardless of the file type.

     21Make sure your editor is supported. Currently these are ''SubEthaEdit'', ''BBEdit'', ''TextWrangler'', ''Text-Edit Plus'', ''TextMate'', ''mi'', ''Smultron'', ''JeditX'', ''CSSEdit'', ''CotEditor'', ''Tag'', ''skEdit'' and ''PageSpinner''. You can find an updated list in [source:trunk/source/ch/cyberduck/ui/cocoa/odb/EditorFactory.java#L44].
     22
     23If the editor does not show up as a choice in ''File → Edit With'' (the only submenu item is ''No external editor available''), you may have to rebuild the `LaunchServices`database of OS X using Terminal.app:
     24
     25{{{
     26/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister \ -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user
     27}}}
     28
     29Alternatively, [http://www.santasw.com/ MainMenu] provides a graphical interface for this. Look for ''Rebuild → Rebuild Launch Services''.

     31~~There is also a hidden configuration option to enable [wiki:help/en/howto/edit#Editfileswithanyapplication editing files with any external application].~~ As of version [milestone:3.4 3.4] enabled by default.
