[Solved] XPS File Format

Postby oOoWilson » Sat Feb 13, 2010 8:39 am

:? Maybe I'm just :ucrazy:, but I can't open an XPS file that was sent to me. I run OpenOffice exclusively, and I can't find anything on the website to show me if OO supports such a file :crazy: , or if there is a conversion program that is endorsed by the gods of the Open text *Que worship :bravo: *

can anyone guide me here?

An "XPS file" isn't a lot to go on. Do you have any idea what's in the file, or what application created it?

The only "XPS" format that I'm aware of is a recent MIcrosoft effort to replace PDF with their own XML format, and OOo does not deal with that at all.

This answers my question. And as far as what's on it, it is a quote from an independent pc dealer... So Thank you very much :super:

OK. They're probably using MS Office 2007, which (as I understand) outputs this "XPS" instead of the more widely supported PDF; so it's basically an electronic printout. I guess MS probably has a "free" reader/viewer for it, similar to what Adobe does for PDF.
