     Subject: Associate file icons with Scribus app
Hello. When I first installed Scribus (last week), I double-clicked a .sla  
file and got the message that my PC didn't know what to open it with, giving  
me a list of programs to choose from. Scribus was not in the list, so I  
clicked 'Browse...' and found Scribus in C > Pogram files > Scribus. Clicked  
on it, and ok'd it. Selected the 'open all files like this' box and OK'd  
that. What I hadn't noticed was that Scribus had not been recognised and  
added to the list of Programs, and that Adobe Reader was still selected at  
the top of the list. So now all my .sla files (if I double-click them) launch  
Adobe Reader.
How can I get Scribus to be recognised please, and get the .sla icons to be  
Scribus instead of Adobe Reader? Thanks for any help offered!
