SciTE show all files in open file dialog

SciTE is a popular cross-platform programmer’s editor. It’s based off of Scintilla.

I edit way more than just source files. Usually I just edit .txt files. If I’m in the Cinnamon desktop environment and not just the terminal, I’ll open up SciTE. However, by default it shows just source files, and I always have to switch it to show all files.

Here’s how to do that.

Get SciTE to show all files in the open file dialog on Linux

Edit the file SciTEGlobal.properties, probably /usr/share/scite/SciTEGlobal.properties

if PLAT_GTK
	all.files=All Files (*)|*|Hidden Files (.*)|.*|
	top.filters=$(all.files)$(source.all.filter)

You can see that you can modify the defaults for other platforms as well. Voila!
