Default text editor

I am using Path Finder version 5.8.1 on OS X 10.7.3.

I want to change the default text editor that Path Finder uses to open .txt files.

I changed this under Preferences -> Applications -> Text Editor. I set it to Sublime Text 2.

But even after I do that and double-click on a text file, it is opening up in TextEdit.

How can I change this??

    If you set Sublime Text 2 in Preferences > Applications > Text Editor, it will show up in the contextual menu Open with > Open with Sublime Text 2.

    If you want to open txt files in Sublime Text on double-click, disable Preferences > Applications > Open TextEdit documents in built-in text editor, then call a Get Info on a txt file, choose Sublime Text 2 on the bottom Open with section and finally click on Change all.
