The settings.xml causes KT to have one of those numerous .NET crash bugs that you have seen people post the code for. By deleting settings.xml and having it re-initialized everything will work fine. However both be the external conversation editor and script editor features by themselves and together produce this result.
I tested the most recent release of Kotor Tool to see if I could duplicate the External Text Editor for the Project Manager setting problem. Here's what I did:
* Tools | Options... menu (Options dialog comes up)
* Selected the Project Manager tab
* Clicked the Text/NSS Editor radio button
* Clicked the "..." (browse for app_ button
* In the "Select Text Editor you wish to use" dialog, selected "C:\windows\notepad.exe"
* Clicked "Open"
* Clicked "OK" on the Options dialog
With the settings saved, I launched the Project Manager and opened an existing project that had .nss files in it. When I double clicked on a .nss file, it opened in Notepad.
If you can back up your settings.xml, then "create" one that causes Kotor Tool to crash by selecting an external text editor for the Project Manager, please send it to me via email.
Finally, remember that the external editor is just for the Project manager; other Kotor Tool functions that need the built-in Text editor are not affected. (That's why the option appears on the Project Manager tab, after all, heh heh; same goes for the external Dialog editor setting as well.)
