Identifying AptanaStudio3 editors in Eclipse's "Open with ..." dialog, & setting them [message #1707523] Sun, 06 September 2015 18:06

I'm installing latest Eclipse, trying for a lean install for primarily PHP/JS/JSON/Web/etc editing with Aptana Studio 3.

It's installed, but I can't figure out how to identify the Aptana editors when doing "Open with ...".

I've installed Eclipse from the minimal Platform Binaries tarball

I've installed Aptana Studio 3 as a plugin,
    ... ( "Aptana Studio 3"

along with its selection of Editors,
    com.aptana.editor.html ( "Aptana HTML Editor" [Active]
    com.aptana.editor.html.core ( "Aptana HTML Editor Core" [Active]
    com.aptana.editor.html.formatter ( "Aptana HTML Formatter" [Starting]
    com.aptana.editor.idl ( "Aptana IDL Editor" [Starting]
    com.aptana.editor.js ( "Aptana JavaScript Editor" [Active]
    com.aptana.editor.js.formatter ( "Aptana JavaScript Formatter" [Starting]
    com.aptana.editor.json ( "Aptana JSON Editor" [Active]
    com.aptana.editor.markdown ( "Aptana Markdown Editor" [Active]
    com.aptana.editor.php ( "Aptana PHP Editor" [Active]

I've also installed some additional modules/plugins, like 'Symfony2', 'Markdown', etc. and allowed the installs to pull necessary dependencies -- so there *are* some PDT pieces, etc.

I've configured Aptana with a theme of choice.

I'd like all my files to open in Aptana Editors, with that theme.

When I create/open a project, and open a file, for example

It opens in a different, non-Aptana Json editor, with a non-Aptana theme.

If I right-click + "Open with ..." on the file, I see
    Json Editor
    JSON Source Editor
    Text Editor
    Text Editor (Studio)
    System Editor
    Default Editor
    Other ...

If I select the 2nd one, "JSON Source Editor", to open the file, THAT appears to be the Aptana editor with my selected theme.

(1) Looking at that, and any other file's "Open with ..." menu, how do you tell which eclipse plugin is providing which editor? THere's nothing that I can find that would indicate that "JSON Source Editor" is the Aptana editor, or what's providing the other one, "Json Editor".

(2) Is there some means to force my files to always select Aptana's Editors as a default/preference?
