[RFF] Key to override custom application
« on: August 02, 2006, 05:41:16 AM »
Dear Mouser,

Hi. A key that allows user to override custom application when running a selected file will be nice. <Ctrl> + <Enter> is suggested.

For e.g. Let's say the system default browser is Firefox and the Find & Run Robot custom Internet Browser is Opera. Pressing <Ctrl> + <Enter> will run the file with Firefox while pressing <Enter> will run it with Opera.

What do you think?

Looking forward to your reply. Thank you.

Regards,
Clyde

im not all that fond of such hotkeys, BUT this might be something solved with the new planned context sensitive actions ideas for v2, where you could say that files with certain extensions should have certain "actions" available to them.

then you could say that .html files should have options like "open in opera", "open in firefox", "open in maxthon" etc., and easily choose.
