Howdy,
I am using a Nikon app and things work fine until I try to use the menu help option (which for the app is an html file). When I do use it, rather than the html file opening, Macvim starts up and opens the file.
Can anyone tell me what is going on?

Seems like for some reason the file was associated with MacVim. Does this happen with other HTML files that you try to open in Finder? If that's the case you can at least fix it by changing the default editor back to web browser but I'm not sure why that would have happened.

Thank you for your reply.
Indeed, after I posted my question, I went and looked at other html files and they were set to open with Macvim.  I was still surprised to see that it went to Macvim when opened from inside the app. But, I changed it and all others to open in Safari.
