I see that it is possible to add a file to a project that is not a source file, such as a PDF, but when the user clicks on this file RIDE automatically tries to open it in the text editor. Is there a way to invoke a different viewer/helper application? We would like to incorporate some diagrams that describe algorithms used in our code.

If this is not possible, is there a way to add a "link" in a C comment that could be clicked in RIDE?

Hi Jacob,

If you are working with Ride7 IDE for ARM and you have installed the latest version of Ride7(7.32), you can do this with:

1. Writing a JScript file that launches your viewer and add the .js file to your project.
2. Or design a new Plugin (Options|Plugins) that launches the viewer and passes the currently selected node as its parameter (Please refer to Ride7 Documentation|Working with Ride7 IDE|Ride7 Plugins)
