This LISP command LOpen will attempt to locate and open a drawing (or image), given a name.

This LISP command LOpen will attempt to locate and open a drawing (or image), given a name. Kevin's variation of the universal open looks for revised names (based on the standards Kevin uses) including a "D" prefix or a "-1" suffix in the name. If no DWG type is found the program, it then proceeds to look for a TIFF, BMP, or a JPEG file, starting the Explorer application in Windows to view it when found. Locate and Open Drawings by Name is very useful when you are looking for a graphic image or drawing and know the name, but you're not sure where you saw it.
