Unable to set Atlantis R-click ''New'' in win 10

Post by rolande »

In Windows 7 I have Atlantis 4.1.4.3 as default app for .doc - .dox - .rtf,
and in the R-click context menu ''New'' > Atlantis document as a .rtf based on my Normal template.

But I've destroyed my brain here for 5 hours trying every sort of thing to find success in Windows 10 LTSC -
but no luck. I'd really appreciate some Help !!

Tried adding different locations to the System Path in Environment Variables,
tried copying the Normal template to C:\Windows\ShellNew, etc etc.

I can make a shortcut in my Directory Opus file manager toolbar to open a new instance of the Normal template,
but it's the damn principle at stake here to understand wtf is going on in windows 10 registry/system OS !

Here is a copy of the .reg file that works beautifully in Windows 7 64 bit :

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf]
@="&Atlantis.Document"
"PerceivedType"="document"
"Atlantis_Save"="rtffile"
"Atlantis_Last"="Atlantis.Document"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\OpenWithList]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\OpenWithList\WordPad.exe]
@=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\PersistentHandler]
@="{2e2294a9-50d7-4fe7-a09f-e6492e185884}"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\ShellNew]
"FileName"="D:\\My Documents\\Atlantis\\Templates\\Normal.rtf"

I was able to get success by continuing different things and comparing other ''New'' entries
such as .txt and .bmp registry entries.

It's always the little things that matter, right?
I discovered that the " & " symbol on the 1st line: "&Atlantis.Document"
is really what made the whole thing NOT work! Just getting rid of that!

Here is what's working now - it uses my desired Atlantis Normal template
configured w/ the margin size, font, etc the way I like it:

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf]
@="Atlantis.Document"
"PerceivedType"="document"
"Atlantis_Save"="rtffile"
"Atlantis_Last"="Atlantis.Document"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\OpenWithList]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\OpenWithList\WordPad.exe]
@=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\OpenWithProgIds]
"Atlantis.Document"=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\PersistentHandler]
@="{2e2294a9-50d7-4fe7-a09f-e6492e185884}"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\ShellEx]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\ShellEx\{8895b1c6-b41f-4c1c-a562-0d564250836f}]
@="{84F66100-FF7C-4fb4-B0C0-02CD7FB668FE}"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\ShellNew]
"FileName"="D:\\Documents\\Atlantis\\Templates\\Normal.rtf"

Have you tried using the “Tools | File Associations…” dialog in Atlantis?
