How to open DITA files

Did your computer fail to open a DITA file? We explain what DITA files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your files.

What is a DITA file?

DITA files are DITA structure files, which you can read more about below.

The DITA 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 DITA opener may not be able to open all kinds of DITA files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
