Feature suggestion

I don't know how hard this is, but if Hotmail can do it ...

What I'd love to do is see the MS-Word editor integrated into CityDesk. If you have Office installed, then you get the MS-Word editor. If you don't you get the default editor. Why do I want this?

The little red and green squiggly underlines. 'Nuff said.

I like the red ones... but the green ones? blech! :)

Thanks for the idea.

You could set different files types to be editted with your Window's default editor. If Word was your default html editor then that would come up.

I've successfully tried editing .asp files within Citydesk with MS Visual Interdev.

There's also the right-click "Open With..." feature.
