I’m considering switching to PN2 because it looks more efficient than what I’m currently using. I’ve been using EditPlus for quite a while and I’ve gotten pretty dependent on EP’s “View In Browser” shortcut (ctrl+b).

Is there a way to do this in PN2?

90% of my work is web development and I run Apache, SQL, Ruby, and PHP on my laptop so I’m always testing my applications locally. I’d love to completely switch to PN2 but I dont think it’ll work out too well withought a view in browser option.

Key Master

Does EditPlus integrate the browser or just launch IE/Firefox/whatever?

You can definitely create a tool to launch a browser (see Tools in options). There is some work under way to integrate the browser as well, but it’s not complete yet and isn’t a high priority at the moment.

Theres an intetraged browser based on IE. But the ctrl+b launches the system default, which is obviously Firefox.

How would I go about having somethings in the Tools options open the current file in the browser?

Make a new tool.

Name it “open in browser”

In the command box put in the path to your browser (click the box and find it).

Leave folder blank.

In arguments just put http://localhost/%f (Taking for granted the file is in the localhost root directory)

Then click the shortcut box and hold ctrl and push b.

Drop down the save combobox to save current file.

Hope that works a bit.
