Fileminx version 1.5 has finally arrived with a new even easier interface and now supporting conversion of Word Documents, Text files, PDFs, RTFs, and many more!
The busy bees of Fileminx Towers have done it again, albeit maybe a little later than planned! Fileminx can now convert the following common office / document formats:
|MS WinWord 6 Document (.DOC)
Older version of the standard Microsoft Word DOC format.
|MS Word (97-2003) Document (.DOC)
The standard file format used by Microsoft Word (until the 2007 version). Extremely popular and can be opened by the majority of modern word processors.
|MS Word (2007) Document (.DOCX)
Standard file format for Microsoft Word 2007-2010.
|Lotus Word Pro Document (.LWP)
Word processor file format produced by IBM Lotus Word Pro software.
|OpenOffice Document (.ODT)
Document file produced by the OpenOffice Writer application.
|Adobe Portable Document File (.PDF)
Very popular and widely used format where content is stored in manner designed for consistent printing or viewing across different platforms. Due to this characteristic, PDFs are for the most part read-only for the recipient.
|Rich Text Format (.RTF)
Common basically formatted file which can be imported / exported by the majority of word processing applications.
|Text File (.TXT)
Simple file format containing plain text with very little formatting information. Universally openable.
|MediaWiki Format (.TXT)
Text file encoded for use in Wiki websites.
|MS Works Document (.WPS)
Format produced by the Microsoft Works word processing application.
It’s super quick and super simple: just browse for a file on your hard drive, click the format you want to convert to and Bob’s your auntie, your newly converted file will be delivered straight back to your browser before you’ve even been able to make a cup of tea. It’s totally free and you don’t need to register or provide an email address.
So for example, if a friend has emailed you a .DOCX file (Word 2007) but you’re still on Word 2003 then you can use fileminx to convert it into a .DOC file which you can then merrily open without having to give a small fortune to Microsoft. Brilliant!
As always, if you find the site useful, please tell a friend!
