  • Selecting your Editor
    documents This will be explained below But before doing this let s first make sure that your Windows machine knows which application that Enfold Desktop should use for editing Setting up your editor When in File Explorer Windows opens a file for editing or reading by examining its file extension For example if you double click on a pdf file the file association menu will determine which application will open in most cases it will be Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat But what happens if you wish to edit a file ending in html or htm What happens if you try to upload a file which doesn t have a file extension at all Sometimes further steps will be involved such as configuring the edit action associated with a file type This is further complicated by the fact that Office 2007 sometimes sets itself as the default editing application for HTML documents With some items such as Plone documents double clicking it will cause it to be viewed in the web browser That is equivalent to the Open action and is not useful for editing Here are steps to make sure that HTML files and by implication the Plone document type open up inside the correct editing application You may have to perform one or more of these steps in order to get your file associations to work correctly Testing your Settings Find a file on your machine which ends in html Right click and choose the Edit menu option Do not choose the Open option The application which opens will be the default application for editing HTML It will also be the default application which opens up Plone documents in Enfold Desktop If this application is what you want for editing no further action is necessary To change the
