Subject:   Re: Default view in the "open" dialog?

Well, it turns out that what I want to do is not possible in 9.1, but it is possible in 9.2. Details are enclosed below.

Hi Brook,

Thanks for asking about the default view in the open dialog.

Bad news, good news about this.

The reported behavior exits in 9.1.3, but has been changed in 9.2. So there's not a workaround at 9.1.3.

But in 9.2, when you make the selection for details (or any of the other selections), it retains that when you open again in the current session or new sessions.

Regards, Max
