In Xshell 5, how to open a file with local text editor?

 
Just notice that there is Xshell 5.

There is new feature that reads "Edit Terminal Contents With a User Defined Text Editor."
I bind it with Sublime Text but I am unable to figure out a way to open remote file with it.
I have search the user manual for Xshell 5 and there seems to be nothing about that.

Program Ver. : Xshell 5

You can't open remote file with feature. It only allows you to edit what is displayed in the terminal. To use such feature, you should use Xftp instead.

--- Take these steps:

[+] Step #1 >> Install/Configure Samba.
[+] Step #2 >> Setup a Samba Share, with an authorized user.
[+] Step #3 >> Mount the share locally (Network Drive in Windows, or a Directory in Linux).
[+] Step #4 >> Configure Sublime to Utilize this new directory.

Sublime Text 2/3:
-- "Project" --> "Add Folder to Project"

Done!
