I'm going to have to reneg on this statement and say yes to the below quote from KevinH

Quote:
Would it help if PageEdit had a single icon that did a save and then quit together?
Would it also be possible to add a save to the launch external editor icon so it save the Sigil file first before it launches the editor?

Thanks

You mean save the entire epub? It already flushes all current changes in that codeview window to the disk. Just as it does with every "open-with" editor.

Automatic saving the entire epub before launching PageEdit is not going to happen as there may be many things you do not want saved. Even BookView did not do that. The user will have to do that themselves.

Please note with the Inspector in PageEdit you can see the entire source tree of xhtml in case you do not like the generated code and decide to change it before saving and exiting back to Sigil.

I can add an action to Save and Exit as one icon. Right now you can use the save and exit icons which is just 2 clicks.

BTW - you could just hit the Quit/Exit icon on PageEdit and if the source has been modified, it will ask you if you want to save the file before exiting. So that is another simple way to get back to Sigil from PageEdit.

How do I open a page in Page Edit ?

Could some one guide me to how to open a page in new Page Edit app from Sigil ?

I cannot find any Open With feature in Sigil. Nothing in the help files.

How does it work ?

I do it this way.

Right click an xhtml in the book browser, viz.

Click image for larger version

Name:	Annotation 2019-08-08 202110.jpg
Views:	22
Size:	97.9 KB
ID:	172814

To put it the list, select "Other applications" and then browse to where you installed PageEdit, and select it e.g

Click image for larger version

Name:	Annotation 2019-08-08 202622.jpg
Views:	17

ID:	172815

if you want a button to click, you can do it via Preferences too.

1. Select Edit > Preferences > General Settings > Preferred alternative XHTML editor > PageEdit path.
2. Click the new Lauch External Xhtml Editor button or press F2.

And I'm fairly certain the Open With feature IS detailed in the latest user guide. I remember updating it from the single application per file-type to the current five apps per file-type.

EDIT:
Quote:
External Editors
— Using Open With To Edit Files —

Sigil is a powerful editor but it can’t edit images and it may not have some of the features you use in other editors. In these cases you can edit the file in an external program – and when you save, Sigil will immediately update its copy. This is very useful if you want to quickly edit images or want to edit CSS stylesheets and immediately see how changes affect the layout of your book.

To edit a file externally, right-click on the file’s name in the Book Browser and choose Open With from the context menu:

When you open a file, you first need to choose an application to use with that file type. Each file type (html, image, stylesheet) can define and save up to five different external applications.

You can then give the application a friendly name that will be used in the menu the next time you use Open With:

When you next use Open With on the file you will see the friendly names you've given your existing applications, and the option to choose another application. Only five applications can be saved for each file type.
