Is it possible to open 2 Lectora files simultaneously with same version or different version on my system.

    It sure is! Open the first file however you like. Then outside Lectora, locate the second file; use File Explorer in Windows or Finder in MacOS. When you double-click the second file, it will open in a second instance of Lectora.

    It would be nice to be able to open multiple files in the same instance, but I've done this a lot and it works fine.

    And some ancillary information too:

    You can also open multiple titles in Lectora Online by launching them from the dashboard.

    In both cases Desktop and Online you can copy and paste between titles.

    Hi,

    When I click the second file (both desktop version 19), I get the attached message.

    Malvika, open Lectora 19 a second time from the Windows Program menu, then use File >> Open within L19 to open the second course.
