Dear colleagues,

A client just sent me an .apxl file. Can Déjà Vu deal with that format? Do I need to create a filter in order to be able to import the file and, if so, how exactly do I do that?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Kind regards,

apxl file Oct 13, 2010

Hi Olaf,

Your apxl file is an Apple's Keynote presentation software format. Déjà Vu does not handle this type of file (you can check supported formats in the Déjà Vu interface - go to Tools, Options, Filters).
You might ask your client if he can convert it into a Windows compatible format.

Kind Regards

Try to import apxl as XML format Oct 13, 2010

It is true that apxl files are Apple format and that they are not supported by DVX.
However, since apxl is a XML clone, maybe you are successful when you import them as XML files?

Try the following:
Go to the Project explorer, select SGML/XML as your file format and click under Properties into the line right from Filter Definition file.
A submenu Template opens.
Select the SGML/XML filter OpenOffice.dvflt and try to import.
Tell me if you are successful.

SGML/XML filter should work Oct 13, 2010

You need to learn more about apxl format to use SGML/XML filter.
