Opening FIG files

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

What is a FIG file?

The .fig file extension is usually associated with the Xfig file format. The FIG files contain line drawings that are stored as vector images. These files may contain shapes, lines, splines, arcs, arrows and text objects as well as images, patterns and colors.

The .fig file extension is also used for REND386/AVRIL graphic data files, Lahey Fortran linker options files, ATOS files, Cabri figure files, DeskMate drawing files and Super Nintendo game-console ROM image files.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
