Tinkering with the Android Starter Edition Xamarin Studio for Windows before I pull the trigger on Indie.
I feel like I'm missing something obvious in configuring the IDE. I registered some of the usual suspects in my toolchain as external tools (Paint.NET, Notepad++, InkScape, etc). I thought this would make them available in "Open With" menus, but see no way to associate them with file extensions.
Windows 8 is doubly frustrating. Just click on a PNG, go ahead, you'll be yanked from your happy desktop world into some fullscreen metro gallery hell
I'm hoping there's some way in XS IDE to register Paint.NET as a choice for opening PNGs, etc, or otherwise hooking up external tools to types of items in solutions.
If XS just interrogates the OS associations to craft its Open With list, then I guess that's okay too. It just seems odd that by default, the only Open With choice for PNG is "Hex Editor" ??
Thanks for any direction.
