Files that contain the .text file extension are commonly used to store standard text document files. These files contain unformatted text documents that can be read by a variety of word processing and text editing applications.
Some of the applications that can create standard TEXT files include yBook, Microsoft Word, Notepad, Open Office Writer and Star Office Writer.
The TEXT files that are created by these programs are normally saved in the ASCII text-based format, saving the drive space on a user's computer.
The ArchiCAD for MAC software also uses the .text file suffix. These files contain the geometric description language files that are used by the software program.
