When I export a report to Word it opens in a different application even though I have Word installed - why?
Tekla Structural Designer
InfoThe report export to Word function uses a simple approach to creating the report. It generates a rich text format (rtf) file and then requests the operating system to open said file. It's then up to the operating system to determine which application to open the file in. Usually, if you have it installed, Word will be your registered application to open files with an rtf file extension.
SolutionIn some circumstances Word is not your default application for opening rtf's. If this is the case you just need to change this in your Settings > Choose a default app by file type.
Then scroll down until you find .rtf and click the current application set
Select Word as your new default
