The GNOME Edit Properties Capplet allows you to select which editor will be your default editor while using GNOME. This will allow applications like the GNOME File Manager to launch the correct editor when you try to open files associated with editing. All popular editors available are included in the selection list. This Capplet is very similar to the Mime Type Capplet but is used in association with certain applications.
