I would like to assign a keyboard shortcut to the "Open with Text Editor" menu element, but I don't find it in the PF keyboard pref. I think it's in the "Commands > Open with" element but when I click to unfold it no sub-elements appears but the arrow turns down.
Same after restarting PF.
I have the latest PF version (6.0.2/1244)

Can this menu element be found in this hided branch ?

    If you use an external text editor, you can try one the available plugins. To open with Path Finder's default text editor, just press Control-Command-O.
    In Preferences > Features > Keyboard I can expand the Commands > Open with and assign a custom hotkey to Open with Text Editor but after relaunching Path Finder or opening the menu with a mouse click, the hotkey is gone.
