Opening files in e2spreadsheet

May 12, 2009 at 3:04 am Leave a comment

A user has reported that they can’t open their saved work in e2spreadsheet.  There should be no problem opening files from within the application FILE->OPEN…,

but there is a workaround to allow you to open files by clicking on the file icon, or dragging it to the application icon, or on the dock.

Just manually add the extension “.e2s”.  So if your file was called “myspreadsheet” change it to “myspreadsheet.e2s”.

However, the user has reported that even with this workaround – they still can’t open their file.  So I need to know if the problem is widespread.

Is anyone else having this problem?  Please try it out.  Save a file from e2spreadsheet, (close the window), and open it again.  Let me know if it works or not on your computer.


File saving in Adobe AIR is a little awkward because the browseForSave() method doesn’t have a typeFilter parameter (whereas all the other browseFor methods do).  So the AIR application programmer can’t specify a default file type.  There IS a workaround – appending the extension after the browse window.  I’ve done this in e2vector – but the workaround isn’t perfect.
