PE6 Suggestion

I also posted this in the main forum, but it probably belongs here:
I spent the afternoon playing with the workspace editor functions of PE6. It took a bit to get used to, but I like it. One function that I would love to see is the ability to add ANY file to the workspace (not just a compatable file) and the ability to link the executable used to create/open that file.

For example, it would be nice if I could add an ExpressPCB (or an Eagle , or a Gerber ) file to the workspace, and tell it to use ExpressPCB, or Eagle, or my Gerber viewer, to open it. Currently, I don't see a way to do that.

If the workspace is supposed to be a repository for ALL of the files pertaining to a project (basically a drawer in a file cabinet), it doesn't quite make it. Even the ability to add a file name to the workspace "container" would be useful as a reminder that the file exists, even if the workspace can't open it.

Just a thought, and it is quite likely that I am missing some function that would allow the workspace to do this already.​
