How to add Alt-1 (calling external editor) to the toolbar

Post by mrwul » Tue Jul 23, 2019 7:26 am

In view mode, Alt-1 will call an external editor (SnagItEditor)
Q: How to add this to the viewer toolbar? (ONLY Alt-1, i.e. not the "Open With" drop down menu)
Can that be done with a _cmd_ thing?
(not sure though, I don't see any _cmd_ lines with a hotkey)

Thanks

Sorry, I don't know how.
How should the command line read then?
say the .exe is in:
d:\Program\xyz.exe

How should it read then?
Sorry, but I am not familiar with this.

Thanks.

add the item 'COMMAND', and click on 'set command' to choose an .exe

Thank you!
It worked. I was not aware/familiar with this option.
Best regards
