Faster Way to Open a File in a Multi User Network Environment?

Post

     I just upgraded from FM3 to FM12 and have a question about file sharing.

     With FM3, hosted files in a multi-user network environment were automatically identified.  All one had to do was open the file in the Open dropdown and if the file was being hosted, the program figured it all out automatically.

     With FM12, you have to go through a trial-and-error process.  First, try opening the file.  If it's hosted, that doesn't work.  You then have to go to Open Remote, then try to figure out which of several computers on your network is hosting the file currently.

     Is there a faster way?

     Thank you,

     Robert
