Get File

Opens a file for viewing or referencing.

Use the Get File command to open a file for viewing. If the Open File in Editor option is not selected, the file will be downloaded but not opened in FrameMaker.

To open a single file, select the desired file from the Resources list then choose the Get button. This opens the file and closes the dialog.

To open multiple files without leaving the dialog, double-click the desired files in the Resources list. When you are finished, choose the Close button. There is no need to choose the Get button when opening a multiple files.
