When I click 'open with' for an attached file that has no file suffix, the 'Always use selected program...' button on the 'Open With' dialog box remains greyed out so that I can never select it.  I realize that not having a file suffix might seem unusual, but this is a common practice for perl scripts.  So rather than me submitting this as an enhancement request, I'm submitting as an issue, albeit a minor one, and asking that a non-suffixed file be treated the same as one that has a suffix.

Thanks,
Brent

Brent,

Thank you for posting. Just to be sure here, do you have a program selected in the Open With dialog box before attempting to select the 'Always use selected program...' checkbox?

Could you post a screenshot of what you are seeing? Thanks.

Yes, I select a program.  Image uploaded.

Brent, 

Thank you for the reply. This looks like it might be an issue with the Operating System as the dialog box showing is a Windows menu, not a PersonalBrain menu. 

Can you go to the file on your system (not in PersonalBrain) Right-Click and select Properties. In Properties you should see a Opens With section with a Change button you can select. If you select that Change button you will see the same menu as above. Is the 'Always use selected program...' button still grayed out?

I didn't realize that the dialog box displayed in TB is the same one Windows displays.  But I can see now that this is the case.  I selected 'open with' in File Explorer on my non-suffix file and, no surprise, the 'always' button was greyed out.  Sorry for submitting the issue and wasting your time!

Brent,

I don't know if this is an option for you, but adding the correct suffix to the file should give you the option to select a default application for it.

Thanks, Patrick.  Adding a suffix is definitely an option, and is probably what I'll do just to avoid having to always select a program.
