What are File Associations?

File Associations are system-wide settings that allow you to choose which file types you would like to open in Chasys Draw IES by default, e.g. when you double-click them in a “My Computer” window (Explorer). Chasys Draw IES supports over one hundred file formats, any of which you can associate with the Artist or Viewer component. You add and remove associations at any time. Chasys Draw IES will provide your operating system (Windows) with thumbnails and previews for the files it is associated with.

To make this easy for you, Chasys Draw IES provides a configuration dialog where you can manage file associations. This is an administrative task that requires administrative priviledges on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 10 and Windows 11:

When you remove a file association, Chasys Draw IES will restore the previous association is one existed when the assoication was made.

Chasys Draw IES includes 32 bit and 64 bit thumbnail handlers that will render thumbnails for use by Windows for all file formats associated with it.
