1419 – How to make ActivStudio or ActivPrimary flipcharts (.flp) open by default with ActivInspire

Applicable to:

  • ActivInspire

    ActivInspire

  • ActivPrimary

    ActivPrimary

  • ActivStudio

    ActivStudio

All flipcharts created in ActivStudio or ActivPrimary will have the file extension .flp.  ActivInspire uses the file extension .flipchart to save flipcharts. If your computer has ActivStudio or ActivPrimary installed as well as ActivInspire, when you open it, it may still open in ActivStudio or ActivPrimary instead of ActivInspire.

Windows

Open ActivInspire, click the File menu and select Settings. In the bottom left corner, click Restore File Associations.
