File formats

Angle 5 utilizes a completely new format for all file types. Instead of a proprietary binary format, now all Angle files are text files based on the XML syntax (Extensible Markup Language), which is both human- and machine-readable. Thus, all Angle files can now be easily used from third-party applications, such as in-house and ad hoc built software, as well as spreadsheet and word processing software.

Being simple text files, they are also human-readable, so you can use a text editor to view or edit them.

Although Angle files can be opened with spreadsheet or word processing software, it is not recommended to use them for modifications. Please use text editors, instead.

Angle 5 is a multi-language application, and it uses the Unicode standard to be able to display and use all international characters. All files created by Angle are UTF-8 encoded, which is the most common encoding used today. If you want to use non-English characters, please be sure to use UTF-8 encoding in your text editor or application.

The first 128 characters in UTF-8 standard are the same as in 7-bit ASCII. This means that you can use any text editor, even those not supporting UTF-8 encoding, as long as you use only English letters.
