IDE source editor file types
« on: July 02, 2018, 08:33:06 pm »
How do I register a new file type in the editor?

Would like to be able to open a spreadsheet in the editor with information relevant to programming tasks.

You can find the information here:

I tried to understand the explanation but it is too advanced for me. I think it requires you to have knowledge to write your own package (*.lpk).

That is for creating new files. If he only wants to open existing files, he may need an editor highlighter for them.
