What is ODG file?

Files with the ODG extension are graphic files, used to store vector graphic, supported by programs based on OpenIOffice. ODG are image files created in XML standard, stored in the OpelDocument OASIS format. The component files of an ODG file, just like all of the ODF series, are contained within a ZIP compressed package. In vector graphic, an image is defined with geometric solids placed in a proper coordinate system – this enables lossless scaling of a given work (often logo projects or various types of illustrations).

Structure of an ODG file

Structure of each ZIP package of the ODF series (including ODG) comprises of at least 5 components:

  1. a single line MIME file, which contains a string of text
  2. content.xml file vector graphic elements and some basic information about styles
  3. styles.xml file extended information about styles (default values, named styles)
  4. meta.xml file metadata for each document (e. g.: creation date, ODF version or author)
  5. settings.xml file – program settings, for example – window size.

The content of any of the above listed structures can be known using one of the unpacking tools.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the ODG file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the ODG file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the ODG file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the ODG file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the ODG file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the ODG file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
