#3045 closed bug (fixed)

[FileTypes] if you create BMP clip you can't open it (easy)

Description

There is no preferred application for BMP in FileTypes. Shouldn't it try to use preferred application from supertype?

Same thing with SGI clip and x-be-bitmap.

There is a MIME type defined for BMP (and BMP snippets are opened properly by ShowImage), but not SGI or PPM. I have added those in hrev28680, so this bug should be fixed.

Also since I fixed the other issue that was showing multiple x-be-bitmap menu items for the ShowImage right-click snippet drag and drop, it should not be possible to create x-be-bitmap clips (because those menu items are filtered out.) Therefore there is probably no need for that MIME type. It may just be BMP though (I am not completely sure), so maybe the BMP MIME type could just be copied into a x-be-bitmap file.

I think x-be-bitmap means an archived BBitmap.

Replying to stippi:

I think x-be-bitmap means an archived BBitmap.

OK, then we probably do not need an explicit MIME type file defined for it, and certainly not under image/ where it would be opened by ShowImage.
