Edit modes in SubEthaEdit

September 17, 2006

Editing the default modes in SubEthaEdit is very easy, if you ever find one lacking. Hold down the alt-option key, click the Modes menu item, and select Show In Finder. SubEthaEdit modes are actually bundles, and the enclosed files can be edited to change the mode’s behavior. In my case, it was opening up ModeSettings.xml for the PHP mode, and setting it as the default mode for .php5 files.
