    I've been using Macrium 5 and just updated to the latest version of 6. In 5 when I double clicked a definition file, it opened a series of dialogs as shown in the pictures. In 6 when I double click a definition it does nothing. If I click the "Run backup definition" button, it runs but I don't get any of the dialogs where I can make adjustments if necessary. Is this a bug or does it work differently in 6? The User's Guide is useless in regard to this. Thanks.

    Allizomeniz, in v6 when I have my "Backup Definition File" TAB open, <double-click>ing a definition opens up the editing dialogue as expected.

    This can also be done by selecting the definition and hitting the PENCIL ("Edit the selected file) icon in the toolbar above it.

    Yes indeed. Double clicking the definition continues to open the Editor in version 6.
    I suspect the issue you have is related to your mouse settings. You can try adjusting your settings slightly.
    Meanwhile, you can just click the pencil icon to Edit (as TheRollbackFrog says) or right click and pick Edit.

    Thanks for the feedback. I did a clean install of 6 and now it's working. :thumb:
