How to edit a file in a external editor

You 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.


Which editor for what files

The default editor of a file is selected using the default application for a given file type set in the (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.

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

No external editor available

If 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 LaunchServicesdatabase of OS X using

/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister \ -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user

Alternatively, MainMenu provides a graphical interface for this. Look for Rebuild → Rebuild Launch Services.
