File type associations

Files double-clicked in Windows Explorer or another file manager can be automatically opened in RealWorld Designer applications. This feature must be enabled manually using the File associations dialog, which can be opened from the main menu command Tools->File associations...

Each line represents a supported file type and its extension. File (or document) types with a checkmark are associated with the editor. When an associated file is activated in Windows Explorer, the editor is automatically started and the file is opened.

Some of the file types (for example .ico) are marked with a system information icon instead of their own icon. This means that Explorer will extract the icon from the actual file and will not use one icon for all files of this type.

The integration with Windows shell can be further increased by installing the RealWorld Thumbnails package, which allows Explorer to display thumbnails of supported file types.

use the cursor editor, have at least 2 frames in your cursor and it will automatically offer you to save it as .ani

I like your software but how do I get my original icons back in the folder? I cant see which cursor or ani it is without opening it first. I thought maybe I'll just uninstall the cursor aker and just install it evertime I use it but then it doesnt know what to use for the icon.
