External Editor

How do I get GitHub Desktop to recognize external editors to add them to the dropdown in File>Options>Advanced?  I have notepad++ installed and in my path but it says I have no editors installed and should install Atom.

Re: External Editor

@mpboom, I know how to get to the screen for setting an external editor. The problem is that nothing shows up in it. As I mentioned, I have notepad++ installed and it's not showing up. I'm sure that Atom will show up if I install it, but I don't need another text editor. Thanks,

Re: External Editor

Hmm okay, thanks for the clarification. Well, I don't have an installation of GH Desktop ready right know.

 

Maybe someone else recognizes the problem?
