I am trying to set MacVim, installed via homebrew, to be the default HEX file editor. I started this task by creating an alias to MacVim.app located in /usr/local/Cellar/macvim/7.3-61 and placing the aliased app in /Applications. This allowed me to see and open MacVim from the Application folder (more info here).

Now that the aliased app is there the "Open with app" selection via the RightClick->Info has the aliased app greyed out. To make matters worse it does not allow me to browse/select the real app located in /usr/local/Cellar.

This doesn't seem to be asking to much here, any ideas on how to change this?


Not the cleanest solution, but pressing / while in the Open With dialog allowed me to get to /usr/local. Found the solution here
