Every time I open a new drawing a new Inventor session starts up and the drawing is opened in there. It's ok if I go through file-open etc in a current Inventor session but I don't want to open drawings like that all the time. If I open 5 drawings at once they start up in 5 seperate Inventor sessions! I can't seem to find an option to change this, is it an inventor problem or windows?
It does not work like that for me, all documents open in the running session. So I asked around and the only suggestion I could get is to use the task manager to kill all Inventor and explorer sessions. Restart explorer, then restart Inventor. Inventor registers with explorer, and it might prompt a re-registration.
This might not help, but it's all I could come up with. If I get anything else I'll let you know, though.
It might help to tell others the version of Inventor and Windows you're using.
Inventor 2013 - Service Pack 1.1
Windows 7 - Service Pack 1
I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,

The proper methodolgy is to start Inventor first, make sure that you are using the correct Project file, then select New and then the required drawing template.
It sounds like you are doing something else such as using Windows Explorer to navigate to where your drawing template is stored. If this is the case, then a new version of Inventor will open.
