CSL File

Did your computer fail to open a CSL file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .CSL files.

What is a CSL file?

A .CSL file is a Calamus Style List file. These CSL files contain the list of different text styles used in Calamus, a desktop publishing application built for Atari ST, a personal home computer released in 1985. These text styles are used in your documents/pages that you created in Calamus.

What else are .CSL files used for?

While Calamus Style List is a popular type of CSL-file, we know of 3 different uses of the .CSL extension.

The CSL file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a CSL opener may not be able to open all kinds of CSL files. In this case, look through all formats to make sure you find the best suited CSL viewer.
