 +====== Specify an editor for some filetypes ======
  
 +If you don't like to use XIDE's internal editor for some filetypes, you can attribute an external editor.
 +
 +Simply edit the ''XIDE.cfg'' file in your main XIDE folder, and add entries in the ''[FileTools]'' section. If this section does not exist, add it.
 +<code>[FileTools]
 +xml = notepad.exe
 +txt = wordpad.exe,%1</code>
 +
 +The 2nd syntax allows you to use command line options, for example
 +
 +<code>wordpad.exe , /param1 %1 /param2</code>
 +
 +(%1 is replaced with the filename)
 +
 +If you press CTRL or SHIFT while opening a file, it gets opened inside XIDE, instead of the tool you specified.
