[TSVN] Feature request: Choose editor

From: Jean-Noël Rouvignac <Jean-Noel.Rouvignac_at_sterci.com>

Hello,

I have a feature request for TSVN: Allowing the user to choose the editor to open a file.

Here is the background of this request:
When browsing the log messages (from explorer right-click menu, TortoiseSVN > Show Log), we can look at a specific file revision (from right-click menu on a revision, Open). Unfortunately, it opens the file with notepad, which is not suitable for Unix files (with LF line ends). To be more convenient, it should be possible to let the user specify its prefered editor.

In the TSVN settings, it is easy to configure diff viewer, merge tool and unified diff viewer. when I clicked Open, I expected the Unified diff viewer (which is an editor) to open this file. This was not the case.

Here is what I suggest: Use the same tool to open a file and view unified diffs. Configuration should be done via TSVN Settings. However, some people might wish to use different tools for these different tasks (the same line endings problems occurs with Unified diff viewer that is why I changed the default).

Please CC me to let me know about this feature request.

Best regards,

Jean-Noel Rouvignac
