Add Action Button

In some cases it would be very useful to open an locally based file. At the moment we only can call external URLs.

For example call a PDF-file located somewhere on the local machine to show the user additional information.

This addition shall act on *.txt, *.pdf, *.chm etc. files. Requirement for this behavior the machine must have installed the reader for this files.

The path to the file must be relative.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Actually the “Visit URL” action can open the local file, just input the URL like this:


It will open the PDF in a new window.

We will improve the action editor to help inputing various kind of URLs (local file, send mail, external URL etc.).
