File right-click Explorer context menu

Post by crtrubshaw »

Hi Rickard, might it be possible to right-click on a file background in the editor and see the option for the Windows Explorer context menu? I am hoping to be able to use the TortoiseGit extension which I have installed without having to leave TextEd.

Many thanks!

You can already do this in the explorer panels. Open the explorer panel and browse to you file folder, find the file and right click.

Okay, is it too tricky to add the same shortcut on the editor background?

Thanks anyway.

It's fairly difficult to add the menu itself and even more difficult to make all those menu items actually do something with the current document. Not all explorer context menu items make sense in that context.

Hmm, last suggestion, what about right-clicking the document tab?

Sorry if I'm being annoying, TextEd is already amazing and I won't ask again.

Cheers!

Perhaps RJ TE doesn't need file right-click Explorer context menu, but rather TortoiseGit integration? Some kind of Git integration would be definitely beneficial. (Sadly, I don't use Git myself -- yet :()
