Supported File Formats
These pages provide information about which file formats are supported by KOffice. They also provide an indication of the extent to which each format is supported. Support for file formats is provided by filters.
Filters are used to convert documents from one file format into another. In KOffice, they serve two purposes:
- to convert KOffice documents into formats that can be read by other computer programs;
- to convert documents created in other programs into KOffice documents.
For example, if you have documents that were created in a different office package, filters may be allow you to load those documents into a KOffice application. It is not normally necessary to worry about filters, because they are used automatically when opening or saving a document in different formats. Various filters are available for most of the KOffice applications. For more information on which file formats KOffice supports, see the filter status for recent versions of KOffice below.
