Description (last modified by andrew_b) (diff)

From #83
It would be great if viewer would have key shortcut to run editor on the same file (so i view some file, understand that i need to edit it, then press, say Alt-F4 and get editor on this file from the same position).
I thought that default editor behaviour (placing current line in the middle of the window) not convenient when switching from viewer to editor (thus is results in shifting text), so i modified abovementioned patch to disable such scrolling in this very case.

Alt+F4 is very dangerous as a shortcut. It is normally stolen by X if you are running mc from within the terminal emulator and does nothing else but closes the current window. Shift+F4 is not too bad, BUT on the other hand, we've got one free place in there (F6), so maybe one could use this instead.

Current 2156_run_editor_from_viewer branch doesn't respect the multi-screen engine. Rework is needed.

i would move the hex mode to F6 (it's not such a commonly used feature that many people would be very upset about this change) and map the function to F4 to be consistent with mc itself. the next mode itself already has a view/edit switch on F2 which should be moved to F4, and save on F6, which should be moved to F2, obviously.
