We have not registered any file extensions at this point - I will do so today. Chances are that RightBrain has already registered this extension. As far as changing Geomview, I'm afraid all we can do is offer a sperate version of Geomview which claims only those file extensions which are eventually OK'd by NeXT. This will keep Geomview from automatically loading those files with conflicting extensions when double clicked from the Workspace or opened from a shell. Any file, regardless of extension, can be opened from Geomview's open panel, so those files with conflicting extensions can still be read by Geomview. This is unfortunate, but we cannot change file extensions which have been used here for years without breaking potentially many things. So, I will register those extensions I can, and offer a version which claims only those extensions. As for what can be done now, you can select a file with the .list extension, and change the default app for this extension via the Tools subpanel of the Workspace Inspector. This only works for the current user, I think, so if you want a global fix, let me know and I'll get a 'fixed' version to you. -Scott Wisdom wisdom at geom.umn.edu
