I use TexnicCenter as an editor for
.tex files and
.lua files as well. In the
file->open dialog box, only certain filetypes are shown by default (e.g.
.bib etc.). In order to open a
.lua file, I need to select
All Files from the pulldown menu which is a hassle. Having the menu default to
All Files is not a great solution because I then have to sort through the many garbage files that reside in the directory. I have associated
.lua files with TexnicCenter, but this does not add them to the menu.
Is there a way to add custom filetypes to the list of default files so that I don't need to keep doing this? "Use a different editor" is a valid suggestion, but for now I would like to see if this is possible using my current editor.
