# Postbuilder Custom Commands with External Editor

Genius

When I right click on the open space in a Custom Command box I get the option to Use External Editor, but then I get a dialog box stating that I need to set my external editor.  How do I do that?  See image.

Thanks!

You should define your EDITOR with an environment variable.
eg.

in ugii.bat

in ugii_env.dat

or direct in Windows User Environment Variables

To clarify, those text files are located in this directory? (or whichever version of NX you're using)

C:\Program Files\Siemens\NX 9.0\UGII

I added in the text to both files and re-opened the program, but no luck.

Tutorial on setting environment variables:

Variable name: EDITOR

Variable values needs to be set without quotes.

Got it!  Instead of "EDIT" as you wrote, I realized I needed to write "EDITOR".

Thank you for the help.

Hello,
but if you edit to an external editor and then save nothing change, only way is to Copy from external editor and paste in Post Processor Builder?

Thank you
