1.14 Configuring Which File Formats Can Be Viewed As HTML

Many file formats in Novell Filr can be viewed as HTML by default, as described in Viewing the File in Your Web Browser in the Novell Filr 1.2 Web Application User Guide. File formats that can be viewed as HTML by default are: .123, .bmp, .db, .doc, .docx, .dotm, .drw, .dxf, .htm, .html, .lwp, .odf, .odf, .odp, .ods, .odt, .pct, .ppt, .pptx, .prz, .qpw, .rtf, .sdw, .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 Filr, but many can be. If you are unsure whether Filr supports a particular file format to be viewed as HTML, try it and see.
