Opening ODG files

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

What is an ODG file?

Files that contain the .odg file extension are most commonly associated with OASIS vector graphic files. Drawings that have been created using an OASIS OpenDocument software application, such as the OpenOffice Draw application (versions 2.0 and later), are saved with the .odg file extension.

These ODG files contain vector graphics that have been saved using XML formatting specifications. OpenOffice Draw is a part of the OpenOffice suite of software applications. OpenOffice was created as an open-source multi-platform, multilingual office suite by Sun Microsystems. This particular file format is expected to become an industry standard for sharing documents across different computer applications.

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.
