I wouldn't do it that way, but whatever trips the trigger... go for it. ;)

Oregon and STIHL recommend filing from the inside out for most cutters, but Oregon recommends filing outside in for square filed, full chisel chain.

Most people cannot keep the chisel moving in a perfectly straight line. If you screw up at the last second filing outside in, you might hook a file tooth and break off that edge you were working to build.

Not sure why this is acceptable for square filed chain. Maybe it self guides more once the edges are established?  Just speculating.

Inside out with round file, outside in when square filing.
