Finder - Open file in given programme

Hey guys,

I'm working with Sublime Text on my mac. I would like to add a button to the touchbar when the Finder app is open. On a button click the selected file should be opened with Sublime.

Is there a way to open a selected file with a given programme?

Otherwise there is a terminal command to open a file in Sublime:
"subl {FILEPATH}".

I wrote a service to copy a file's path to clipboard in Finder and assigned a shortcut. So I can copy the filepath with BTT. But I dont know how to tell BTT to execute the subl command with the copied path.

Can anybody help?
Thanks in advance!

Best regards

The trigger you are looking fore use "trigger context menu item" :wink:

Ah thats nice! The trigger is using the current mouse position but I guess I just have to get used to it, instead of selecting a file. thank you!

the even better trigger is "open selected file with specific application " :slight_smile:

oh my god, i must have been so blind...thank you very much, Andreas! Working like a charm!

Is it relevant now? I only see "Open active/selected folder with specific application". No files selected

The action is called "Open Current Finder Selection with Specific App"
