Double-click on DGN file in File Explorer starts a new MicroStation process. I want it to open that DGN in the already-running MicroStation process, not start a new instance of MicroStation.
When I already have a DGN open in MicroStation (V8 or CONNECT), I'd like to be able to open a different DGN in that MicroStation instance/process by double-clicking on that DGN in File Explorer. Unfortunately, doing this opens a new, additional MicroStation instance.
How can I get the behavior I want here?
P.S. Here is my use case. I want to be able to create a spreadsheet with list of DGN files (with full paths) in it, as a hyperlink. I want to be able to click on any entry/link to get that DGN to open in my current MicroStation window. I don't want it to open ten MicroStation instances if I click on ten file links in this spreadsheet.
