Tweaking ePubs (4): Choosing a text editor

We discussed earlier in this blog the tweak_epub utility that you can use to make minor changes to EPUB files. This utility automatically used the standard Windows text editor Notepad to edit the files contained in EPUB packages.

A number of people using this utility said they would like to be able to choose a different text editor. This is now possible in the new version of the tweak_epub utility. Click this link if you want to download it:

When you run the updated utility, you'll see a new button, "Choose Editor...":

Press this button to choose another text editor. Note that you have to select the executable file of the text editor. Executable files have the ".exe" extension. For example, the executable file of the Windows Notepad editor is "notepad.exe".
