Associating Plan and Layout Files with the Latest Version of Chief Architect

Reference Number: KB-01131
Last Modified: September 15, 2015

The information in this article applies to:

Chief Architect Premier or Chief Architect Interiors


When I go to double click on a .plan, .layout, .calib or .calibz file, the version of the Chief Architect program that launches is not the version that I want to use.

How can I change this file association within Windows so that the version of Chief Architect I want will open when I double click on these file types?


If you have just installed a new version of Chief Architect, when it first launches, it will display this message:

"Do you want to associate plan. layout, and library files with this program?"

Select Yes to associate plan, layout, and library files with this version of the program.

If you would like to re-associate these file types to use a different version of the software, please see the appropriate online Help Article for your operating system.
