Developer: N/A
File type: Adobe Form Designer 5.0 File/ChiWriter Printer Fon
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .xft. Files with the file extension .xft can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .xft files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .xft file?

Files using the .xft extension refer to the forms that are created by Adobe Form Designer 5, an application that allows users to create personalized documents as well as interactive forms. While this software was formerly called Adobe Designer, it is more commonly known as Adobe Livecycle nowadays. All the forms that are used by this software are all .xft files. .xft files also refer to the 24-pin printer font that the ChiWriter use. ChiWriter is known as a multi-word processor developed by Horstmann Software Development Corporation. It was actually developed for MS DOS but Windows can already launch this software. This software is good at creating its own graphic screen. The .xft font files contribute a lot to making the software function better for the convenience of the users because they contain edit settings related to the speed and interactive support delivery. These .xft files can be opened with the use of various applications such as Adobe LiveCycle, Horstmann Software Design ChiWriter and a lot more.

how to open a .xft file?

Launch a .xft 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 .xft file will open it.

ChiWriter is a scientific text editor that has an MS DOS-based platform and was developed by Horstmann Software Design Corporation in 1986. It was among the first WYSIWYG editors which has the capability to write mathematical formulas. The basic function of this software is that users can add lines above and below text lines and write there at the same time, this is used to create subscripts and superscripts including complex formulas like fractions. It has the ability to use several fonts including Greek alphabet, Cyrillic alphabets, Mathematical symbols and other symbols. The ChiWriter software is suitable for scientific papers due to the formulas and spatial elements that are structured with the use of boxes which are horizontally and vertically aligned matrices, these boxes can be nested. Another major feature of the software is the use of tables. Tables can cross page boundaries even with fixed width columns and it can be provided with various kinds of borderline. As of 1996, ChiWriter is no longer marketed, sold or supported because it did not support Windows based platforms.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .xft 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, .xft. 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.
