Installing & Using
External Tools

External Tools

Right-Click Menu

Dynamically Associate Programs to Files

allowing you to choose which program to open file at runtime.

Appear on Main Menu and Popup Menus depending

on where you decide they should go on a tool by tool basis

Will be available on the menus only

for the file type(s) you specify. Separate and multiple file masks can be specified for displaying each tool on the main menu (Tools > Tools >) and for the right-click popup menu. This keeps the menus from being cluttered with tools that are not relevant to the current file.

Multiple External Tools (i.e. Programs)

can be associated with one or more file types and/or file specifications (e.g. *.BMP and S*.DLL

Apply to Focus Entry or all Selected Entries

Each tool can be set to apply to only the currently highlighted entry or to all selected entries.

Can be Enabled and Disabled easily

without uninstalling the tool by simply checking and unchecking check boxes.

Can be used to Search the Internet

for information on filenames or file types. For more information on this facility. For instance, to search Google for the current entry you would enter INTERNET as the Program and"<Name>.<Ext>" as the argument in the setup dialog. Similar tools can be defined for looking up file extensions on popular Internet sites.

Similar to External Viewers

that are automatically called whenever a file of the correct type or matching the specified file mask is selected. To learn more about External Viewers
