Association plt files in cadview.ini

Post by pavel.vlach » 13 Oct 2008, 16:26

Hi
How can I tell to CAD viewer TC plugin which files it should open via pressing F3?
It pretty works with *.plt and *.hpgl extensions, but my very old microstion (v5) creates *.001, *.002.... files or files with extension I hardly define but without incrementing.
So my idea is to edit CADViev.ini and associate 001,002,003,004,005 extensions to open.
Is it possible?

Unfortunately such functionality is unavailable in the current version of CADView Plugin for TC.

Hello - take a look at the settings of TC. There you can select a "prefered viewer" for F3 when there is an extension which is not defined within a viewer plugin.

But CADView Plugin must "understand" what *.001, *.002 etc. file format is. Simple associating via TC gives nothing.
