eDrawings 2010 - Change default open document type to "All Files (*.*)"

Question asked by 1-JNCKX4 on Jun 14, 2010

We do most of our design work in Solid Works and AutoCAD and have eDrawings installed on the rest of the employees workstations so, that they can view those files from time to time. When our (non-engineering) users try to open a file with eDrawings it defaults to the "eDrawings Files (*.eprt,*.easm,*.edrw,*.eprtx,*.easmx,*.edrwx)" file type and many of our users don't understand that they need to change that, using, say, AutoCAD as an example,  to "DXF/DWG Files (*.dxf,*.dwg)" so that the Open dialog will list the AutoCAD files available in that directory.

 

We'd like to configure eDrawings to default to "All Files (*.*)" or even "DXF/DWG Files (*.dxf,*.dwg)" in the open dialog to make things easier for them. I don't see any obvious way to do this though. Nothing is leaping out of the registry or in the installation directory to configure this.

 

Any help would be appreciated!
