Opening additional files in LayOut 2019

Re: LO 2019 MR1
File Opening Problem

Hi LayOut Team,

I normally open my LO files by double clicking a desired file in File Explorer (Win10).

No problem opening first file this way. When I desire to open a second file with LO already open, I cannot open the second file. There is no result or activity of double clicking on a selected file. (I also tested file in File Explorer and select file to open with, with no success as well).

Alternatively, if I have LO open and one file open, I can successfully open a second file through LO’s menu File > Open…

Also to note, I was able to successfully open second (and more) files through File Explorer in original LO release (19.0…).

Let me know if I can be of any additional assistance with this ticket.

Best.

Hi Lindsey this sounds like the same issue these folks were running into.
Please try the solution that RLGL has given.
