startup profiled Autocad by double clicking on a dwg

Recommended Posts

hi

 

I've customized AutoCAD for each discipline I use by creating a different profile for each. in order to use that specific profiled AutoCAD i use a shortcut at my desktop with some switches in the target property. that practice makes the double-clicking to open the default AutoCAD. 

 

how can I double click a dwg and have a popup appear that asks me which profiled AutoCAD i want to use opening this dwg?

 

Thanks

Shay

You're going to need a 3rd party application to which you associate DWG files.

 

In the meantime, you an drag+drop the DWG file onto the shortcut, or open the application first using the desired shortcut, then drag+drop the DWG file onto the title bar or command line.

If you save, say to users1 a profile name you can check it. Users!-5 are variables that you can save stuff into Userr1-5 is reals and userI1-5 are integers (setvar "useri1" 1) . Using xdata would be better to save profile name.

Look at this
