Filezilla Default editor preference

Does any one know the correct file type I need to replace TextEdit.app with in order to have filezilla default to SublimeText editor. I know i need to go into preferences > file editing > filetype associations then replace TextEdit.app with sublime text but it's not excepting.

. /Applications/TextEdit.app php /Applications/TextEdit.app js /Applications/TextEdit.app db /Applications/TextEdit.app css /Applications/TextEdit.app bak /Applications/TextEdit.app module /Applications/TextEdit.app xml /Applications/TextEdit.app mo /Applications/TextEdit.app

I've tried, Sublime Text.app, Sublime-Text.app, SublimeText.app, SublimeText SublimeText.exe

Select the "Use Custom Editor" radio button and put the location of the app for me its "/Applications/Sublime Text.app".

You can pick what file types but I have the radio button selected on Always Use Default Editor because I only edit with sublime text.

Also note you can get the file location from right clicking the app and going to "Get Info" on the mac.

Some common file types that you most likely want to select if you don't use for all are: .html .xhtml .xml .php .css .js .asp .jsp .scss

notice that there is a space between Sublime Text --> "/Applications/Sublime Text.app"

Duh, the radio button was right in front of my face. Two hours later and the hardest part was finding the radio button haha. Thanks for the insight!!
