Open a File That Is Not Part of a Project

This will NOT add the file to the project. It will simply open the file in the editor for viewing.

1. File > Open File

From the main menu, select File > Open File… 

Open File Menu

2. Choose File(s) to Open

In the Open File dialog, select the file(s) you wish to open. The file(s) will be opened in the editor, but they will NOT be added to the project.

You may select multiple files either by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking on each individual file or by selecting the first file in a contiguous range, then holding down the Shift key and clicking on the last file in the contiguous range.
