Adding File Types to Stylus Studio

You use the procedure described in this section to associate a file type ( .txt, for example) with a specific Stylus Studio module or editor. Once you do this, any time you open a file of that type from within Stylus Studio (using the File Explorer, for example), that file is opened in the editor you specify.

You can optionally specify that you want to use Stylus Studio as the default editor for files of this type, regardless of where the file is opened (from a file browser like Total Commander, for example).



You do not need to specify the usual extensions, such as xml, xsl, and java. Use the procedure described in this section for file name extensions peculiar to your application or environment.

To add a file type to Stylus Studio:
1. From the Stylus Studio menu bar, select Tools > Options.

Stylus Studio displays the Options dialog box.

2. Under General, click File Types.

The File Types page appears.
