(b) Using your 'Windows' explorer simply double-click on a Draft it drawing. Draft it will associate itself with files of this type on installation and therefore will start whenever one is selected. If Draft it is already running another Draft it window will start.

(c) Using your 'Windows' explorer simply select the Draft it drawing(s), right click on the mouse and select 'open' from the pop up menu. Draft it will associate itself with files of this type on installation and therefore will start whenever one is selected.

Different results depending on the Draft it version

The free version of Draft it does not support multiple document editing. Therefore if you open a drawing via method (a) the current drawing will be closed (if this drawing has changes that have not been saved then you will be prompted to either save the changes or cancel the command). If you open a drawing via methods (b) or (c) then each drawing selected will be opened in its own Draft it program window.

This following feature is only available in:

 Architectural, PRO & PLUS Only

These enhanced versions support a Multiple Document Interface so the selected drawing(s) will be opened in a single Draft it window. Each can be selected via the drawing tabs at the bottom of the window.
