View Full Version : Choose how to read html

20th May 2007, 11:01 PM
Dear People,

Sometimes I want to read .html files in Tofu, sometimes in Camino. It depends on the context. At the moment I have to get info and change the application to open for each item.

Is there someway in which I can click on the particular file and before it opens I get a window that gives me a choice from a list? {Tofu, Camino, Firefox, TextEdit, &c}

Would this be solved by Apple Script? If so, how? Or is there another way (e.g. a freeware thing)? Or am I thinking about it the wrong way?

Any suggestions, or references where I should look, would, of course, be gratefully received.

Right click on the file (or ctrl click if you only have 1 mouse button) and hover over 'open with...'

(is that what you were after?)

Oh yes I forget that! Thank you.

You can also drag files onto apps in the dock. There's also the "customise toolbar" option in the Finder - I have a basic set of programs such as a textedit, Graphicconverter, VLC etc in my Finder toolbar for this purpose as not all those apps are in my dock.

Excellent, and it keeps that preference for the file, which is just what is needed.
