I just discovered the new feature to edit the preamble externally.
However, I couldn't find where to set the editor for this of any
documentation about it.  On MacOS it opens XCode which asks me to

pretty useless for me.  I have set a different application as default
for TeX files but LyX seems ignore this.  How can I make LyX open my
favorite editor?

Thanks. So, I take it, there is no documentation of this.

Next, question: how do I set a Custom editor then? I tried "/Applications/texmaker.app" but nothing happens though "open /Applications/texmaker.app" in the terminal works just fine.


Following Paul's response, I chose Custom and entered notepad++ (my preferred text editor) in the adjacent window. I've included C:\Program Files\Notepad++ (preceded and followed by semicolons) in the path string at Tools > Settings > Paths. It works (at least in windows).


Thanks for checking. Might be a macos bug then.
