.sla File Extension

Developer: Scribus
File type: Scribus Document
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .sla. Files with the file extension .sla can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .sla files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .sla file?

Scribus is an application that can create, open and modify files with the .sla extension. This open source word processing software has support for page layout and text formatting, and images among other digital objects mostly used for presentation materials can also be embedded into these .sla files. XML-based standards among other XML specifications are also integrated into SLA files, and documents saved in the .sla format promotes convenient document collaboration through its quick and easy file sharing features, because these SLA files can be saved using the .sla.gz extension, a Gzip compressed version of the SLA format which can be easily attached to emails or uploaded to a Web server. The Scribus program also offers wider cross compatibility support than some word processing applications, because a version for Mac-based systems, another version for Microsoft Windows users and a Linux version are readily available as open source applications. This means users of different platforms can collaborate and share their SLA files with their peers and associates.

how to open a .sla file?

Launch a .sla file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .sla file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .sla files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .sla file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .sla file will open the correct application.

Scribus has several page layout features that can be found on some other applications like PagePlus and Adobe PageMaker. Scribus is specially designed for typesetting and layout with the aim of preparing the files to be used for image setting. It also has the capability of creating interactive as well as animated presentations in PDF format. It supports several formats in bitmap which includes Adobe Photoshop, JPEG and TIFF. This application is being supported in 24 different languages. Scribus includes a scripting engine that is built-in on the program itself that runs on Python.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .sla files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .sla. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
