How to open STENCIL files

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

What is a STENCIL file?

STENCIL files are EGS-SpectraPaint Stencil files, which you can read more about below.

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