Hi,

I'm new to these forums, so I'm sorry if I've not put this in the correct place or followed forum rules.

I am writing a gEdit External Tools shell script.

In the 'Manage External Tools' dialogue box there is a drop down menu to choose the output.

These options are:-

Nothing
Display in bottom pane
Create new document
Append to current document
Replace current document
Replace current selection
Insert at cursor position

So the script can only use one of these.

I want to be able to choose the output from the script. Is there an output variable that can be set in the script? Is what I want even possible?

I've scoured the web for a solution, but to no avail, so I've come here for help.

Thank-you in advance.
