open file from sidebar with other program

Postby Akakie on Sun Dec 02, 2012 8:20 am

I want to open a .csv file shown in the sidebar with Open Office. I've tried modifying the "open with" preference, but all I get is the preferences page. There is no list of choices for what program to open with. That preference page includes the excerpt here. Can anyone point me in the right direction to make this work? I'm a long time TextMate user and got used to opening spreadsheet files this way in that program. I've been trying to learn ST2, mostly for the benefits of the split screen. Some of the configuration I find pretty confusing. Like this one.

Code: Select all
   //application 3
  {
  "caption": "OpenOffice",
  "id": "side-bar-files-open-with-openoffice",
 
  "command": "side_bar_files_open_with",
  "args": {
  "paths": [],
  "application": "/Applications/OpenOffice.org",
  "extensions":"csv|doc"  //any file with these extensions
  }
  },
