The Open command load files of various types into the appropriate type of Mira window. This command opens the Open dialog that functions in the familiar Windows way, but with the addition of some useful controls along the bottom of the window.
Execute this command from the File pull-down menu and from the Main Context Menu.
To the familiar the Open dialog, Mira adds support for Image Sets and File Lists, as follows:
If you select more than 1 file, Mira adds support for opening the files as an Image Set in addition to the normal process of opening all files in separate windows. This is the Open as Image Set check box.
If the format being opened is recognized as an image file or as a File List (.axf file), Mira enables File List functionality through the [File List >>] button.
In addition to the selection of standard File Formats such as FITS and TIFF, Mira adds support for File Opening Plug-ins. These plug-ins can be used to open files in formats that are otherwise unsupported.
