Open file dialog Action

Specify the title of Open file dialog window and the initial folder in which to look for files. Once performed, the Action shows the standard Open file dialog window with custom title and requires user to point to already existing file on disk. Selected file is then stored as Open file dialog Action variable that can be retrieved by any subsequent Action by using Variable Wizard.
