I was recently working on a print and forgot to mark down the original dims before making all of the changes. I attempted to open the file again, as a read only, by going to "open with..." and selecting another program. After doing this, AutoCAD now opens a whole new AutoCAD program each time a print is opened. I tend to have multiple drawings open at a time and cycle through them, but am unable to smoothly now. With all of the programs open, my computer starts to bog down.
Does anyone know of anything I can do to make it so that AutoCAD opens the drawing as a new window vs a new program? It would be greatly appreciated.

what are .dwg files associated with now? In either Win7 or WinXP, they should be associated with "AutoCAD DWG Launcher"
