Default Better text editor

I just recently converted to FlashFXP from FTP Voyager. FlashFXP really, really needs a better file editor. When you right click and select edit a normal text file, everything is hard to see and overall, its worse than notepad. Not very many good features either. Perhaps you could make it have a built in "Ultra Edit(good program", or similar to the one ftp voyager uses. Just one with a bit more features and nicer.

Speaking of nicer, a better skin could be added to FlashFXP.

Or you can configure FlashFXP to use any external text editor.
Options > File Associations

Please use the search function in the board, this has been answered a number of times, and if I remember correctly skins were on the consideration list.

Actually, if I don't get yelled at for this. It doesn't work. I tried using the custom file associations setting and it doesn't work. Just uses the internal editor when I open a file. I think you should just use a whole different internal editor, it really wouldn't be a bad idea.

why reinvent the wheel...there are many good file editors, such as above mentioned ultraedit. why not just use them?
why external editors don't work for you, is another topic, and if you want it adddressed, feel free to make another thread.

it's not designed to replace HomeSite or MSWord, it's there for quick and dirty file editing/viewing.
but the hell ffxp's internal editor "worse than notepad"?!

you say "nicer and a bit more features" but you haven't listed a single specific feature.

i think majority of people on this msgboard will sooner cut their wrists and bleed to death rather than see "skins" support in flashfxp.

and finally, this is NOT support suggestion, so moving the right forum
