Open File in External Editor

Is it possible, i can't find any suitable setting, shortcut etc. I want

to open for instance an openoffice document, that lies in project folder

with external editor without switching to Windows Explorer & Co

There is not anything built into IDEA. But take a look at the Native Neighbourhood plugin (http://plugins.intellij.net/plugin/?id=38) which provides this functionality.There are some other plugins in the "OS Integration" category (http://plugins.intellij.net/category/?category_id=90) that allow you to open a file in Explorer.

There is. It's called "External Tools" and I find it very useful.

File -> Settings -> External Tools.
