What asset types are supported?


ExamDeveloper supports uploading almost any type of file. However, only certain file formats may be viewed directly in your web browser. Image types such as .PNG, .JPG, and .GIF, can be viewed in all supported browsers. Since only a few types of .TIF files can be viewed in browsers, we recommended that you convert them to another format prior to uploading them.

File types such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint must be downloaded to your computer in order to view the file.

The following table summarizes the supported file formats for all asset types available in the application.

.doc, .docx, .ppt, .pptx, .txt, .xls, .xlsx, .eps, .pdf, .rtf, .odt, .odp, .ods, .xml, .hsp, .iie.

The file formats .xls and .xlsx are also known as Spreadsheet Material.
