I'm sure I've overlooked this, but I can't seem to find out how to change the default HTML file extension in the online Help, by searching the Knowledge Base, or by doing a Google search. Under File > Settings > File Types, it lists a number of extensions for HTML files, including *.html and *.htm. However, when I create an HTML file, the drop-down in the HTML File dialog box provides three options: HTML, HTML5, and XHTML. (In contrast, the comparable dialog box for PHP files provides all of the allowable extensions for PHP files.)
I would like to use the *.htm extension for my HTML files, but I can't seem to do that. If I type in something like myfile.htm in the HTML File dialog box, my file comes out named myfile.htm.html. Sort of using the generic File type of file to be created, it seems that I am forced to use the *.html extension. Surely there is some way to change that default or list the *.htm extension in the drop-down. Can anyone help?
I so rarely create static HTML files that this has never been a problem for me before, but I now have to create a variety of HTML files, and this behavior has become quite annoying.
