Opening FLIPCHART files

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

What is a FLIPCHART file?

The FLIPCHART file format was developed by Promethean as a data file format for their ActivInspire software. This is a presentation and lesson plan creation tool that was designed for teachers and educators.

The ActivInspire software is used for developing interactive digital presentations that can be displayed through electronic whiteboard equipment in the classroom. These .flipchart files contain digital data that may include text, images, mathematical calculations, formulas, equations, videos, sound clips, formatting attributes and metadata details.

These FLIPCHART files are normally used for presenting arithmetic lessons, mathematical exercises, lectures and other educational materials. A .flipchart file can only be created, opened and edited by using the ActivInspire program.

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.
