Documents opened recently are listed in the File menu.
Choose the document name from the list of recently opened documents in the File menu.
Double-click a Canvas X Draw document icon in a folder or directory on your system. The program starts and the document opens.
When you choose Open, a directory dialog box lets you select a file in the scroll list and see a preview.
You can select Show All Files to list all the files in a folder. This is different than Selecting All in the File Format pop-up menu, which lists all files that Canvas X Draw can open.
If you need additional help working with files, folders, and directories, refer to your Windows documentation.
You can open more than one document at a time in Canvas X Draw. When you open a document, Canvas X Draw loads the document into your system’s memory. You need to have enough memory available to hold the document’s contents. Documents that contain many complex objects or large high-resolution images require more memory than simple documents.
When you work with a document, changes you make to the document are not saved until you use the Save or Save As commands.
If a document you open uses fonts that aren’t available on your system, Canvas X Draw displays a dialog box before opening the document. Use the dialog box to review which fonts are required by the document and to select substitute fonts, or you can let Canvas X Draw select substitutes.
