8.11 Planning File Types for HTML Conversions

Many file formats in OpenText Vibe can be viewed as HTML by default, as described in Viewing the File in HTML Format in the OpenText Vibe 4.0.8 User Guide. File formats that can be viewed as HTML by default are: .123, .bmp, .doc, .docx, .dotm, .drw, .dxf, .htm, .html, .lwp, .odp, .ods, .odt, .ppt, .pptx, .prz, .rtf, .shw, .sxw, .tif, .txt, .vsd, .wpd, .xls, .xlsx, .sxi.

Some file formats, such as .pdf files, cannot be viewed as HTML by default. This is because the quality of these files is lessened when viewed as HTML. However, if you choose, you can enable non-default file formats, such as .pdf files, to be viewed as HTML.

Not all file formats can be enabled to be viewed as HTML in Vibe, but many can be. If you are unsure whether Vibe supports a particular file format to be viewed as HTML, try it and see.


Under Additional File Types for HTML Conversions, specify the file types (in addition to the default file types) that you want users to be able to view as HTML.
