Wow. As I’ve mentioned before, we’re pretty big users of Google Docs to supplement our desktop office suites. One of the great things about Google is it’s continuous development of its online suites. Today, Google announced it added support for 12 new file formats to its Documents support. Here’s the list of formats:
- Microsoft Excel (.XLS and .XLSX)
- Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 / 2010 (.PPTX)
- Apple Pages (.PAGES)
- Adobe Illustrator (.AI)
- Adobe Photoshop (.PSD)
- Autodesk AutoCad (.DXF)
- Scalable Vector Graphics (.SVG)
- PostScript (.EPS, .PS)
- TrueType (.TTF)
- XML Paper Specification (.XPS)
Interestingly, they still do not have built-in support for the Open Document Standard. I don’t get it, really. I mean, LibreOffice (and OpenOffice) have very large user bases. Curious.
Here’s their blog post about the new formats: 12 new file formats in the Google Docs Viewer – Docs Blog.
