Opening SW files in Finder

Question asked by Harry Hasson on May 9, 2017

Hi, I'm using SW 2017 on an iMac (OS Sierra), using Parallels Desktop 12 and Windows 10.

I am having an issue when opening files through Finder, and can't seem to find a solution.


What I want to be able to do is choose a file (SLDPRT, SLDASM or SLDDRW), double click it, and it open in the SW application.

This works for the first file I choose, but every time I try it on another file it opens a new SW application window (rather than opening it in the already-open one).


Is there a way to fix this? I never had this problem on the previous version I was running, but this was on a different OS, Parallels, Windows and SW, so I can't work out which one is causing the issue.


Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
