.dsf File Extension

Developer: Corel Corporation
File type: Designer File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .dsf. Files with the file extension .dsf can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .dsf files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .dsf file?

The DSF file extension is a data format known as Designer File or Micrografx Designer v7.x file. DSF files are associated to Corel Designer, a drawing program previously owned by Micrografx. It was originally developed by Micrografx, which was bought by Corel in 2001. DSF files contain vector graphic, such as text, raster images, and drawn objects which are used to create illustrations like company logos, marketing materials, and other print and digital graphics. The latest version of the software is Corel DESIGNER Technical Suite X5 which was released in 2010. It creates illustrations, diagrams and technical documentation with confidence. It is effective for the creation of engineering drawings, but also offers many functions for graphic design. Key features include precision vector drawing, integrated CorelDraw, enhanced Photo-Paint and PowerTrace. This software is implemented with support for more than 100 file formats, including AutoCAD DWG and DXF, Microsoft Visio (VSD), CGM, SVG, DOC, DOCX, RTF, JPEG, PNG, TIFF, RIF, and XLSL.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .dsf files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .dsf. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
