Using QuickCursor with TextWrangler

Via Michael Tsai’s blogQuickCursor is a new utility that let’s you use the text editor of your choice to edit text fields you encounter in any program. It supports BBEdit by default, but it’s not too hard to add support for BBEdit’s little brother TextWrangler. Here’s how:

Open with Property List Editor, display the QCEditInChoices array, and click Add Child. Enter com.barebones.textwrangler and save the file.

Now you can use TextWrangler almost anywhere.


Of course, it’s not too hard to cut and paste text to and from another editor. This is most useful if you define a shortcut key to open the current text field in your favorite editor.
