Open selected file from editory window


Hi All,

Only just started using this and i really like it.

I am used to using ultraedit which has this great feature to open files.

Simply in the editor window when you are typing code if you type in afilenment (typically because you are referring to it) then you can select the filename and if it exists in the same folder then there will be a menu selection called ‘Open …’

I could not see this in the documentation. Did i miss it? Could it be added?

Kind regards



Have you tried the open-this package?


Ah , no i have not looked closely yet at the packages (only been through the documentation). Sorry about that. Ill try this immediately.




Just to update, this worked very nicely.

Thanks for the support. Quickly adopting Atom this over UltraEdit :slight_smile:

Kind regards
