Can't edit README.md

I can only edit 'readme.md' in lowercase but not in uppercase 'README.md' .  

How to fix this ?

Webstorm 2020.3.2 on Linux Mint 20.1

Please could you elaborate on this? what do you mean saying that you can't edit it?

When I created a 'readme.md' file in lowercase the editor opened it and I had a blinking cursor, when I created the same file in uppercase the file wouldn't open and no blinking cursor. I need the file to be in uppercase.

Same here. i created a new repository on bitbucket with the option "create README.md automatically". Then i cloned the repo to my local windows-system.

With a fresh install of the latest php-storm, a double click on the REAMD.md File in the project-window shows the output, but there is no possibility to edit the content of the file.

@Rh

but there is no possibility to edit the content of the file.

There, switch to the first or second (active on my screenshot) mode instead of your third one.

  1. Editor only
  2. Editor and Preview
  3. Preview only

Can you switch there? Does it work for you?

 

P.S. It's a README file that IDE opens on the first project opening. It is expected (at very least I see nothing wrong with this) that such a file is opened in Preview mode here (as it mean for you to read what this project is about etc and not edit it).

But sure, if this mode is also used for all other Markdown files, then it's obviously wrong.

Very curious choice of default mode to open a document in "preview", rather frustrating design choice having the icons all the way off on the right and not alongside the rest of the toolbar would have made it easier to "discover" the preview and editor mode buttons. This had me googling all over for a plugin until i found this FAQ.

Thanks Andriy, 

I think "Editor and Preview" should be the default set :) ... less irritation.
