    Requested Open "not-a-picture" with external editor

    I would like if the Open with external editor command was a little more smart. So that IrfanView could know my preferences for external editors for picture, sound, and video files.

    Right now, for example with v4.0, if I have opened a WAV file, and select the command "File>Open with external editor (Shift+E), I get this error message:
    <my defined editor> cannot read this file.
    This is not a valid bitmap file, or its format is not currently supported.

    So, if we could separately define editors for some of the types of files, that would resolve the issue.
    I wish to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather.
    Not like those passengers, in his car, when he drove over that cliff.
