    Default 2007 - open & save as: no browser window

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    when opening or performing a 'save as' on files from within CAD 2007, a browser window doesn't pop up as in previous versions. instead, I get a command prompt on the dynamic tooltip (I think that's what its called) on the crosshair. it appears that the program expects that I know the file path by heart or something...

    I'm sure this is just a matter of changing an option/setting, but I can't find it. If you know, please pass the info along!

    attached is a screen shot of what happens when you hit "ctrl+O" .. very annoying.

    thanks!

    You need to set your FILEDIA variable to 1.
