You can open documents from ProjectWise Explorer by double-clicking them or by using one of these commands:
- — used to check out (if possible) and open the selected document in its default application, which is typically the document’s native application. This is the same as double-clicking a document. If you do not have File Write access to the document, Document > Open will be disabled when you select that document in ProjectWise Explorer. If the selected document is a version (which means that it is read-only by nature), then Document > Open will open the document as read-only, and the document will not be checked out.
- — used to open the selected document in its default application without checking it out.
- — used to open the selected document in an application that is not the document’s default application.
- — used to open the selected document in a viewing application without checking it out.
With the exception of using Document > Open With, the application that opens the selected document depends on the ProjectWise application associated to the document, and the program designated to open or view documents associated to that application.
