We have had occasions when we open a drawing file a message will pop up telling us that the file was not properly closed and DataCAD will try to recover the file. That is fine except that sometimes when this happens the file wasn't properly closed because it is still open on someones machine. I think what happens is that someone will open the file and leave it open overnight and when someone comes in the next day and tries to open it DataCAD assumes that there was a problem with the way it closed the day before and pops up the message. When this message pops up there is only one option "Okay", recovery of that file may not be what we want at all. So is it possible to add an option to cancel the recovery or abort opening the file or something like that?
