About Opening Files
You can open files across platforms, retrieve files from other directories, and retrieve earlier versions of a file. In addition, you can use wildcards to retrieve objects and to perform procedures to save time when retrieving graphics. To open a recently saved file, click its name at the bottom of the File menu.
You can retrieve files of all types from the current session (in memory) and from disk using the File Open dialog box (File > Open). You use this dialog box to:
Navigate your disk and directory structure.
Filter displayed file types.
Preview Creo Parametric files.
Select and open a file.
Import files into Creo Parametric.
Create or select simplified representations of files.
