[ jEdit-users ] Daily build - file association

Sarah Cranston
How do I set up my Windows file associations when using a daily build?
I followed the steps online, going thru the file settings for that
file extension and selecting jedit.exe, but nothing happened and
Windows still associates that file with another program. I'm on
Windows 7.

What steps did you follow? Here's a link to MS that tells how to do it, is this the same one you used?

What I do is use the windows installer that is officially released to set the file associations.
I install it to c:\jEdit so it doesn't go into C:\Program Files. That way I have file permissions already.

Then I use the java .jar installer to upgrade over that with 5.4.

Re: [ jEdit-users ] FW: Daily build - file association

In reply to this post by Dale Anson-3

I think 5.4.0 should be released ASAP.

If not for anything else then to resolve broken plugin install/update mechanics…

 

OT question; jEdit being excelent editor, are there any plans to make it „prettyer“?

Metal is outdated and other lafs have problems, all of them; „windows“ has repainting problems on window/component resize; Nimbus has broken buttons( to small?) and weird sized scroolbars, „motif“ is plain ugly and all other from coresponding look&feel plugin have problems or are just weird/ugly.

 

So, such a great editor and it looks plain bad L

 

Tnx!

Dalibor, have you tried the Substance look and feel? I think it looks quite nice and I use it all the time. It's distributed as a separate plugin that integrates with the Look and Feel plugin.

Which particular file extension are you trying to associate? There's a registry modification that's needed for certain filetypes, when launched from certain programs (if, for instance, the association works correctly from Explorer but not any other programs)

Xsl. It's very odd: even when I browse to and select jedit.exe, jedit still doesn't appear in the list of programs I can use to open the file. But, I see that 5.4.0 is out, so all should be well once I get that set up :)

Xsl is one of those text formats about which Windows seems to have opinionated behavior.

I've found that this registry modification often works (info taken from [here]):
  1. Open Registry Editor (Windows+R, "regedit")
  2. Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT > .xsl
  3. Make sure .xsl is selected and not one of the sub-directories
  4. You should see an entry called PerceivedType which has its value set to "text"
  5. Double-click on PerceivedType and change the value to "document"

Re: [ jEdit-users ] Daily build - file association

I upgraded to 5.4.0 today - actually I uninstalled all my other
instances first, and got a clean Application Settings directory, and
migrated in whatever settings I wanted from my old directory, just to
be sure I didn't bring along any weird behavior from before. I'm still
having file association problems.

Jesse - I tried a CSS file too just in case XSL was being weird.

Whenever I follow the usual steps ...
* Right-click the file, Open With, Choose Default Program, Browse,
navigate to  & select jedit.exe ...
I get taken right back to the "Open with" dialog box and jedit has NOT
been added to the list of programs I can open with.

Thankfully, I do at least have the "Open with jEdit" option in the
context menu on files, but I sure do miss that double-click action.

This is on Windows 7.
