Layout Context Menu Open with Image Editor

Postby sjn001tvh » Mon Apr 06, 2020 11:00 pm

Greetings,

For the last several weeks I have been trying to resolve an issue where the Open with Image Editor is not opening. I insert a photo, and I can usually edit it by right clicking on the photo and select from the context menu Open with Image Editor. But nothing happens and yet it had worked flawlessly for years and I actually depend on it.

I cannot find any documentation as to how it gets triggered, or how to resolve the issue.

Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Scott.

Suggest having a look at the Layout dropdown menu: Edit/Preferences/Applications/Default Image Editor. Could be that you need to relink after an operating system update. That's as much as I can come up with!

I'd agree with shawb. Make sure your image editor is shown in references.

Thanks for your input. It appears that all of my default applications are missing, showing only "/" in the field item. If I have not paid attention to these applications prior to this, where would I start with respect to accessing these applications?

Thanks,

Scott.

(on a PC/Windows 10) You could try a search from the Taskbar or go to the File explorer in the Start menu. Just a matter of looking through each of the sub-directories to find the app required. Make a note of the location and then go back into Layout to link.
