Desktop external editor issue

Hey guys, I’m having trouble using the external editor feature of Joplin. I would like to use a terminal with vim as my external editor, so I have specified my executable path as /usr/local/bin/termite, and the arguments as -e /usr/bin/vim. Vim seems to open up fine but it does not open up the file. Is there some further argument I need to provide to get this working?

can’t you run /usr/bin/gvim without using termite ?
