    Pagemaker 7 launching separate process for each file I open

    207NCloverdaleBlvd

      I'm running Pagemaker 7.0 on Windows XP. When I double-click on a Pagemaker document in Windows, Pagemaker launches and opens the file, just as expected.

       

      However, if I then double-click on another file, a whole new instance of Pagemaker is launched to open that file.

       

      Thus, if I open three Pagemaker documents in this way, I end up with three instances of Pagemaker running.

       

      What used to happen, and what I want to have happen, is that the second and subsequent files would open within the first instance of Pagemaker, and I could switch between documents within that one instance.

       

      I can still use File --> Open in Pagemaker to open multiple files within a single Pagemaker instance.

       

      Does anyone know how I can tell Pagemaker, or perhaps Windows, not to launch a new instance of Pagemaker each time I double-click on a Pagemaker document in Windows?

       

      Thanks!
