  2. Click the  icon, then select System Preferences.

  3. In the Supported File Extensions box, configure the button to either Allow certain file extensions or Prevent certain file extensions.

    @Lindsey - WebDAM supports .xls file formats for asset management. If you upload an excel file with a macro embededd, that macro will remain intact when someone downloads that file.

    Does WebDAM plan to add the file types .wpd (Word Perfect),
    .dwg (CAD packages), and/or .rtf to the supported list any time soon?

    Does your roadmap include supporting other formats like svg or xml format or will we be able to convert eps to svg or xml in the near future?

    Hi Cristina - WebDAM currently supports both of those file formats. In the short term, we do not have plans to add conversion of these file formats, but I will be sharing this request with the team.

    Teresa and Aimee - Supporting these file formats is currently on the roadmap. I recommend following the Release Notes for a notification when new articles are added to this page.

    Thanks!
