How to change the Filter Conditions, Type in iManage to default to all files when opening a pdf from PowerPDF? 

When you open a file in PowerPDF from the iManage DMS, by default the file type defaults to "pdf".  (see attached screenshot).  How do you change this so there is no filter and all files are displayed by default?

Resolution

On the workstation, they have to put the attached following file, "PDFProDMS.ini " in the following location: %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Nuance (this is usually C:\ProgramData\Nuance)

This file contains the following command which set the filter to be blank:

      [WorkSite]

      PDFOPENFILTERAPPID=" "

Note, if they already have this file in place already, add this line to any existing lines in the file.
