change red editor from notepad to gvim?

  • In Windows mged, if you red a region it brings up notepad and it is not formatted very well.  Is there a way to make it default to gvim?

      There's not really a way to override the editor in 7.8.0 on Windows.  That was fixed a few weeks ago, though, and will be possible in the next release of BRL-CAD for Windows.  It'll respect setting an EDITOR environment variable override like it already does elsewhere.

    • Thanks for the info, and I will be looking forward to the next version.
