Microsoft word processing programs create DOTX files, which are template files containing information like AutoText, macros, toolbars, and layout and settings. You'll rely on this file to seamlessly create or generate documents with the same formatting. Users can alter Normal.DOTX files to create template files to suit their needs or preferences. DOTX is compatible with multiple operating systems, including Linux, Windows, iOS, macOS, ChromeOS, and Web. Each operating system relies on different programs to open or reference DOTX. The most popular programs used on Windows include Microsoft Word 365, OpenOffice Writer, LibreOffice, Kingsoft Writer, and File Viewer Plus. On the other hand, programs unique to macOS are Apple Preview, Apple Pages, and Planamesa NeoOffice. Suppose you want to open these files via the Web. In that case, you can rely on Google Docs, Google Drive, and Microsoft Word 365. You can use Google Docs if you use ChromeOS. You might also need to convert a DOTX file. In such instances, you can consider different word processors, including the programs mentioned above. These word processors will ensure that your document is converted to .DOC, .DOCX, .DOT, .ODT, and .PDF files, depending on personal preferences. You can also choose to have them in XML, XPS, HTM, HTML, and TXT formats.
