File Choose Dialog

The interface VCOM:VectorWorks:Filing:IFileChooserDialog allows you to specify filter for the shown files. The filter is composed of file extensions list.

On Win this list is shows as different filter entries.

On Mac there is no such thing and the filter's file extensions are combined into one list that is used to enable the files witch those extensions. If in the list 'Show All' is present then all the files are shown on Mac regardless the other extensions in the filter list.
