Re: Support Other File Types

Is it possible to open multiple copies of the same file?

Is it possible to open multiple copies of the same file without us making a copy of the file to a temporary file and opening it from there?

I realize if possible the other copies would be read only but we have a client who wants to open say 10 tabs of the same file.

And here's a quick mock up of how I think it should look with the Header Text the same as the Dialog Text. To me it's much cleaner, more modern, and you shouldn't ever have a conflict in being able to cleanly read things.
