Add button to open a replace list for editing

Postby DFH » Thu Jul 21, 2011 11:16 pm

Sometimes there is a need to edit a replace list file after something new comes to light during filter development.

If one hasn't already got it open in a suitable editor, it would be useful to have a button the open the file directly from within the replace list filter.
e.g. Provide an {Open} button next to the {Browse} button.

NB. In user preferences, (for this purpose) it should be feasible to choose between either the associated application or a particular application.
e.g. If you have a .TAB or .CSV file, you might wish to open it with Notepad++, rather than Excel.

Just double-click the field. This works on all file and folder edit fields. Note - 8.9.2 has errors doing this - fixed ready for 8.9.3.
