The dialog box opens when you click the Add button or select a custom file type and click the Edit button on the File Types page.

Use the dialog box to configure and re-configure presentation and highlighting of keywords, comments, numbers etc. in files of a specific custom file type. These settings make the basis for parsing files of this type in the editor.
