Macro function: OpenProgramAtCursor()


The Open Program at Cursor command can be used to open the program or document that appears at the text cursor.  For example, if the filepath to a .PDF file appears at the text cursor, this command will open that file in Acrobat Reader.  If a .DOC file appears at the cursor, the file will be opened in Microsoft Word.


bm2This command relies on the underlying ability of the operating system to identify and locate the program that is associated with a given file type.  If a document does not have an associated program, it cannot be opened.  See File Associations for more details.
