11.5 ISE - Project Navigator does not use Custom Editor for File -> Open or Recent Files


A user has set a custom external text editor in the Project Navigator preferences. This works fine when the user double-clicks on a text file in the source pane.  However, if the user performs File -> Open in the Project Navigator GUI, or opens the file from the Recent Files list, the file opens in the ISE text editor instead of the selected custom editor.


In ISE 11.x, both Recent Files and File -> Open do not attempt to use a custom editor if the user has set one up.

This issue is scheduled to be fixed in the ISE 12.1 software release.
