File associations for Contribute 3? - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

I know that Contribute can directly import content from a variety of Office formats, but does it have a "native" format that it "owns"? I know the user can add new file extensions for saving, but how many different extensions does Contribute come set up to use? During the install process, what file extensions does the program want to make itself the default app for? Thanks....

    Default File associations for Contribute 3?

    I know that Contribute can directly import content from a variety of Office
    formats, but does it have a "native" format that it "owns"? I know the user
    can add new file extensions for saving, but how many different extensions does
    Contribute come set up to use?

    During the install process, what file extensions does the program want to make
    itself the default app for?

    Thanks.

    Default Re: File associations for Contribute 3?

    On my fresh install of Contribute CS3 on Windows, the installer didn't ask to
    "own" any file extensions, nor did it alter the extension mappings for any
    existing files. All of my "html" filetype (htm, shtml, html, etc.) are still
    set to be owned by IE.

    Contribute does not take ownership of web extensions, and does not have a
    native file extension. It does utilize connection keys which use the extension
    ..stc. By default Contribute already knows that it will be editing .html files -
    If you need your files to be edit using another program like Dreamweaver, you
    change the default Editor via Edit> Preferences > File editors> Webpage source
    and then pick Dreamweaver or Notepad.
