Support Other File Types

What is the best way to add in support for other files types to the Editor?

We want to be able to convert other formats to PDF for all of the open, drag and drop, and insert commands. As well as drop our supported file types into the dialog box drop downs.

Re: Command Offline doesn't return correct value to me

Thanks so much.

The pdfCtl.Frame.Obj didn't appear to return the correct values but changing it to the pdfCtl.Inst.ActiveMainView.Obj I think causes it to return the correct values.

cmd.Handler.OnGetItemState(cmd, null, pdfCtl.Inst.ActiveMainView.Obj, out state);
