Post Assign a program to edit book

Hi World!

Can I assign a program to modify a type of book? Specifically, I would like to assign an editor for PDFs

Thank you very much.

Open With Plugin allows you to set individual system programs for each type of entry.

No need for plugin, calibre now has a built in Open With.

Right click on a PDF in Book Details, select Open PDF With, if your program isn't listed, then select Add other application for PDF Files... and browse to program.

An entry will be added to Preferences->Keyboard->Open With for the program which you can make use of - e.g. if you selected Nitro PDF Editor you could give it a keyboard shortcut of Ctrl+Shift+N.
