Hey there, this is my first request, so please be patient :)

I’m just wondering if it would be possible to implement an option into rox-filer, that lets users decide whether to run an executable file or open it with editor for this file.

Example: I have several shell scripts, that I want to edit. I always have to right click them and have to open them as text, instead of simply double clicking them for editing them in desired text editor, because double clicking runs them silently in the background.

Conclusion: there should be an option to set in the configuration dialog that makes it so that rox-filer ignores +x permission and simply opens the file when double clicking it.

    Just hold down Shift when you double-click.

    Holding shift works, but it is not what i was talking about. rox-filer is nearly perfect for me, only this one things bugs me a lot! It’s just annoying to always keep in mind to hold shift, when double clicking executables.

    There should be a way to swap this. Shift-click for running, and regular doubleclick for editing.
