Multiple AC Version in ‘Open with’ context menu

Where we are testing various iterations or Archicad be it the Silicon AC26 or preview releases it would be great if all installed versions of the same Archicad version were available in the right click open with context menu. At present only the Apple Silicon version of 26 appears so you have to browse to the normal version.

My assumption would be that that would have to the with the OS side of things... On Windows, you can edit the contents and paths of that list through the registry. Maybe something similar with MacOS?

Yeah, I’ve tried editing it by changing the default app to open the files with back to the current Intel release of AC26 but it just reverts back to the Silicon Tech Preview. It seems macOS recognises the two apps as being one and the same and because the tech preview was installed most recently, that is what takes preference.

It seems much much quicker running natively.
