I would urge caution against going much beyond the functions of a file manager and trying to make ZTree an omnibus app. Directly navigating to a file is definitely within the purview of a FM but requiring it to parse a filename and automatically route it to an external app is not (as well as it being a near impossible task as there are a near infinite possibilities). Better, IMHO, is to just give focus to the file and let the user decide on the next action.

Namaste', Art
