How do you change the text editor in ipswitch ws-ftp12 ?

It shows Notepad in the tool option area, but when you try and edit a file on line it keeps bring up wordpad.
I have to transfer the file back to my off line folder to edited it and transfer it back again. Alittle wasted time the and I don't like wordpad

In WS_FTP, I have in Options, General Notepad.exe set as the default editor. When I click on (say) a .LOG file, Notepad is used.

Under Options, Active Edit, I have <Windows Default Association>   What do you have here?

You might try a couple of approaches:

1. Uninstall WS_FTP, restart and install it fresh.

2. Go to Control Panel, Default Associations and make sure the file type you use the most is associated with Notepad.
