In ABAP Trial system, can we get a better text editor?

Is it possible to get a normal (I think it's called "graphic") text editor when connecting remotely to an ABAP Trial system? It seems to always open the old ugly SAPScript style editor (bleh!). This is the message that flashes by (typo original :) ) if I try Change Editor in the menu:

No program available for processing document



You tried to open an office document, but the required application is not isntalled on your PC.

Well, in this case it doesn't run on "my PC", so is there some workaround? Or maybe something could be included in CAL distribution? Not a huge deal but I already forgot how awful the old editor was and now it's pretty annoying. :)

Thank you!

  • I'm not using my PC because it's my own private laptop and I don't have (and don't want to) SAP GUI installed on it. Also in this particular case I needed to use a different SAP GUI theme than I prefer personally for work. So running it remotely was the best option in this case.

    Anyways, there seems to be no answer, so closing this.

  • Why you are not using "your" PC?
    I'm always deleting immediatelly the unneeded Windows virtual machine to safe money. You just have to open the ports on the Linux virtual machine and then you can connect from your local SAPGUI.
