Document Preview File Types

Hi,
I am trying to find a list of all the file types that the document preview in a SharePoint Online environment supports. By this I mean the preview must show the contents of the document, and not just the metadata.
Does anyone know of a list I can reference?
Thanks

Basically its all the standard office document types and PDF.  Its the same list as the document types supported by Office Web Apps since that is what does the preview.  Here's a support article that explains what Office Web apps supports.

PDF files are handled the same as .DOCX

  • Embed document preview files in a MVC website

    Greetings,
    I am building ASP.NET MVC 5 web application which need to show preview of user uploaded document. Since these are commercial document files, we don't want to use 3rd party viewers like google viewer as suggested
    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11836076/adding-microsoft-world-web-app-to-a-website-or-previewing-documents-online
    Please suggest any solution which can be used to embedded inside the web site itself to show preview of the documents like
    http://viewerjs.org/ which has limitation to show only local and open document formats files.
    Regards
    Thanks Paz

    Thanks Stefan, Yes agreed 3rd party component will work. Need some suggestions on it.
    Also 3rd party viewer I meant a service where the file or document has to be send to external service and then It will return the rendered HTML etc.
    As suggested below I am reposting the question to MVC forum.
    Regards
    Thanks Paz

  • Document Preview Capability in Files?

    I have a vague memory of being demonstrated a capability within Files (though could have been email) to preview a lot of standard document types without having to download the full document.
    So for example it will generate a read-only html view of a word document that you can use to look through the document before deciding to download a full copy. Can someone confirm that this feature exists and maybe point to where I might find documentation on this feature.

  • Changing The Preview Image for File Types

    Is there any way for me to change the image that shows up as the preview for file types? For example, I use OpenOffice and all my .doc files show up as blank pages of paper, which I don't like. I've tried to change this to no avail, from using the "Get Info" window to within the program itself. Any help?

    If you have an image that you want to use, do a Get Info on it, select the image at the top of the box and then copy from the Edit menu. Then on your OpenOffice document do a Get Info and paste the image into the little image icon at the top of the Get Info box.

  • When I try to same an image under the command 'save as' it will only let me save as file types 'firefox document' or 'all files' and when I try to look at them later they dont work. How can I save an image as the same file type it is on the web site?!

    When I try to save an image under the command 'save as' it will only let me save as file types 'firefox document' or 'all files' and when I try to look at them later they dont work. How can I save an image as the same file type it is on the web site?!
    == This happened ==
    Every time Firefox opened
    == I updated to one of the firefox versions (Not sure which one it was)

    Thanks Alex, but sadly I already tried that. Neither .docx or .xlsx files show up in the content list. They both show as a Chrome HTML document so changing how Firefox addresses those doesn't help since it thinks its the same type of file. I don't think I can manually add files into the "Content Type" left side nav.

    After a little Googling, it looks like B.Media is a content management system from Wave Corporation used for making catalogs. Doubtful you'd be able to license it at less than an enterprise level.

  • [CS3][JS] How to get the file type of current document

    Hi,
    How to get the file type of current opening document (e.g., tif, jpeg, png) using JavaScript with Photoshop CS3.
    I am using file object the open the files one by one in the folder (the files sometimes don't have the extensions).
    If the current document is in tiff format then I need to convert to 8-bit, if its an Jpg image then needs to ignore the file.
    Regards,
    Karthik

    Do you really need to know the file type? What about just checking the bit depth?
    var doc = activeDocument;
    if (doc.bitsPerChannel != BitsPerChannelType.EIGHT) {//Not 8 bit
    doc.bitsPerChannel = BitsPerChannelType.EIGHT;
    //do your save etc
    }else{
        //Ignore

  • DNG file types don't show thumbnails or previews

    I am having trouble with Adobe Bridge CS5 for Mac OSX.  Up until last week it was working fine.  I haven't made any changes to my computer or my camera or anything like that.  But now .DNG files won't show their thumbnail or preview.  I only see the icon for the file type in the thumbnail list, and then when I click on the thumbnail, I just see a bigger version of the file type icon in the preview window.  However, JPEGs show up just fine.
    I've searched through this forum and tried:
    - Resetting the Workspace
    - Resetting Bridge to default (Opening it with the Option key pressed)
    - Purging the cache
    - Checking that Camera Raw is properly installed (I have 6.7)
    - Updating DNG Converter to 8.3
    But no luck yet.  Is this a new issue or something?

    What about your old DNG photos which used to display properly? Can you still see those okay?
    Have you set the Compatibility preference in DNG Converter to Camera Raw 6.6 and later?
    Can you confirm that you have only one copy of Camera Raw 6.7 installed, and no other versions in alternative File Formats folders?
    You could also try ACR 6.7.1:

  • File-type "Firefox Document (.htm)" images saved to the HD won't open

    Images online occasionally default to file-type Firefox Document (.htm) as opposed to the usual jpg. They will not open even with firefox and display as coding.

    Can you describe in more detail what happens when you try to open the saved movie? I don't know what you mean by "main menu1".
    Since you saved your movie you may find it completely intact in the project's Package Contents folder. Right-click on the project icon (the one with the star on it). Select Package Contents in the drop down menu. In the Package Contents folder you should find a file named (project movie title).iMovieProj. Open that file and see if your movie is intact with all edits. If it is, duplicate it and move it to your desktop. Rename and save it as a new project. Don't otherwise mess with the Package Contents.
    Is your external drive formulated for Apple? Should be MAC OS extended or MAC OS extended (journaled).

  • Preview has taken over RAW file type binding from Photoshop

    Preview v 3.0.4 has taken over as the default program with which to open RAW files. Double-clicking a RAW file in OS 10.3.9 or earlier (?) used to automatically open RAW files into the latest Photoshop version installed (be it 7, CS, CS2).
    After purchasing a new Dual 2.7 G5 with Tiger 10.4 or 10.4.4, ALLL RAW ICNS have changed to a PREVIEW.app's icon for RAW images, and RAW files now default to Preview when double-clicked, instead of the Photographer's choice of Photoshop, as it has been for years.
    These and other file type bindings (PDF) have been captured by Preview in the new OS.
    What is going on? What to do? How do I regain the original file binding of RAW files to an intelligent and professional program (PHTOSHOP CSx), instead of this NEWBIE nearly unusable PREVIEW application?
    Simply remove all PREVIEW resources? Then it's usefulness for browsing large numbers of images will be lost.
    I simply want PREVIEW to leave my professional digital world alone and let me continue working efficiently.
    Any help? Ideas?
    Thanks a bunch,
    jes360

    Simply select one of your crw files, do GetInfo (command-i) on the file and in the Open With section choose Photoshop. Click the Apply to All button. From now on all crw files will open in Photoshop. I suspect the default changed because Preview can now open many many raw files, and not everyone has Photoshop.

    Have recently updated Adobe Reader and now unable to open downloaded documents - Message received is could not open 'file name.pdf' because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded). When I check the file it shows Zero KB downloaded but the file appears - any suggestions?

    Obviously your download was not successful.

  • Where is "save as" or how to change file type in Preview in Lion?

    Where is "save as" or how to change file type in Preview in Lion? I used to use Preview to change quickly change a lot of PNGs to either JPEGs or PDFs but with the introduction of versions auto save etc there no "save as" in the File menu. Any suggestions how to get this functionality back or how to get around it within OS X (no Photoshop etc)?

    Just wasted 15 minutes looking for that.  What's wrong with Save As?

  • All pdf say they are the wrong file type or are damaged.  will not allow to open in preview and no pdf's can be printed as they are "empty"

    All PDF's I try to save will save but nobody can open them.  Message is it cannot be opened by reader it is the wrong file type or has been damaged.

    Hi Michelle in MD,

  • Archived document showing unknown file type

    Dear all,
    Im having a big issue here.
    We are using Kofax to scan the document like expenses into the content server(maxdb)
    Previously the system is R3 4.7 with EP6. We are able to open the attachment without any issue.
    but recently the system has been upgraded to ECC6 7.01, and now the problem comes..
    when we click the attachment list, a windows will pop out and we have to save the file with unknown file type to local drive.
    Then we have to use the picture and fax viewer to open the saved attachment.
    There is no changes on the Kofax bacause we have other systems which with R3 4.7,and ECC6 7.00 are using the the same content server but without any issue.
    We usually saved the file with TIF.
    We found that the image saved with wrong content type.in OAAD the  "Content-type" is saved with value "i" .
    the correct value should be "Content-type" with value "image/tiff"
    We have used OAWD to save the TIF file but also having the same issue..

    Hi Jason,
    Check for the workstation application in DC 30 and define the mime types for all applications like .tiff,.docx i.e. office 2007 files. and second suggestion is that install ECL viewer 6 with patch , it's free at sap marketplace and check these files are opening properly.
    Hope this will resolve the query.
