Open multiple files in one instance

(1/1)

sandbox:
I select a number of txt files in Windows Explorer and select 'Open' in the context menu, each file opens in it's own instance of SlickEdit. I want all files to open in the same instance. Is this possible?

Clark:
If you open the files one at a time, do they open in the same SlickEdit instance?

sandbox:
Yes. Also, if I use the 'Send To' context menu item to open multiple files they all open in the same instance. It's only when I use the 'Open' menu item it opens one instance per file.

Clark:
This is a limitation with v20. This is a race condition which is handled better by v21. You can simulate this by writing a batch file which invokes SlickEdit twice with two different files.

sandbox:
Thank you for the reply, it's not a major issue and something I can live with.
