I would like to be able to create a shortcut to PAF5 which includes an instruction to open a specific PAF file. This would just seem to require the right command line options, but I can't find out whether PAF has any such options. Do you know how to do this?
My reason is that my wife and I both use the same computer to research our family history with PAF. When you launch PAF, it automatically opens the file that was open when the program was last closed. If I have been using it with my PAF file, next time my wife launches PAF it opens _my_ PAF file, which she then has to close and go and open her file. This is a minor annoyance which could be eliminated if I could create one shortcut for me and another for her, each of which opens the correct file.
I hope someone can help!
Many thanks - Rowan
