Hello, you need to create an iOS standalone, open the package (right clic on the icon) and copy the « info.plist » file to the desktop.
Then add these lines in this files :
##### add these lines ####
             <string>XXXXXXX</string>   // name of your choice
                 <string></string> // exampe:
             <string> XXXXXXX </string>    // name of your choice
                         <string>com.owner.nameoftheapp</string>  // exampe:
                 <string>xxx</string> // extension you want to handle
###### end #####

Then, you need to add the info.plist to your app with the « Copy file » section of the Standalone builder.
