What happened to Default Actions?

In the old GW 7.0.3 client, under Tools -> Options -> Environment ->
Default Actions, there was an option to tell GroupWise whether to view the
attachment or open it when the attachment was double-clicked.

That's no longer there in GW 8. I've tried looking around and can't find
it nor an alternative to setting that.

It's driving one of my users crazy. Anybody know how I can tell GW to open
the attachment by default and not view it?

Thanks in advance.

"Right Click" the attachment and the GW8 Client gives the options to
View or open with another program...

Plus other options like save and so on...


Is that good enough?

Not really. We'd like to save it as a default action.

I agree, why did they remove this option????
the Viewer is terrible for the most part and we always would set people to Open Attachment by default. Solves a lot of problems.

Hope they put the option back in!

Re: What happened to Default Actions?

FYI,
I still dont know why the option is gone, I think it has to do something with the Editor modes... but... here is the registry key you can change that will make the default Open instead of View


[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Novell\GroupWise\Client\Setup]
"File Attach DoubleClick"=dword:00000001

Hope that helps

Thanks Joe. I'll give that a shot.

Make sure you submit an enhancement request as well. Perhaps they'll change it back. I'm submitting one right now.
