open file from referenced viewport

Recommended Posts

On VW2008, whenever I wanted to open a referenced file while working, I double-clicked the VP-> a dialog box opened and after accepting the original referenced file will open.

On VW2009 it's not working.....is there another way? or is this a bug? i tried it on different computers.....

It works the same way in VW 2009. What happens when you dbl click at the viewport & select the "open referenced file" option? Does it give you any message?

Hi Tami,

I've attempted to reproduce this issue, however it seems to be working for me. Are you getting the 'Edit Viewport' dialog and then an Alert asking if you would like to open the referenced file? If not, try resetting your 'Always do the selected action' settings (Preferences->Session->Reset Saved Settings). Does this issue occur all the time, with all files? Could you post a simple test file(s) that displays the problem?
