dotx A .dotx extension file is a document template file where the x stands for XML (eXtensible Markup Language). The DOTX template files are created using the Microsoft Word Processor. They can either be content templates or layout template to suit custom needs. A DOTX template includes information on the auto text, settings, layout of the document, toolbars and macros. There are some standard .dotx format templates provided by Microsoft but users have the option to create customized templates as per required specifications for business correspondence including envelopes, letters, newsletters, training material, forms, brochures, announcements as well as for legal documents that include contracts and agreements.
wps .WPS is a file extension that provides for word processing documents from Kingsoft Writer, a free alternative to Microsoft Word. The format was developed by Kingsoft, a Chinese software company, for the release of their own office suite back in 1988, WPS Office. WPS is an acronym for Writer, Presentation, and Spreadsheets.
Apart from Kingsoft Writer, .WPS is a file extension that provides for Microsoft Works, an earlier project of Microsoft before Microsoft Office. The former office suite was discontinued back in 2007 and is no longer in use. The file extension was replaced by .DOC format, a more versatile and more advanced file format and the standard for Microsoft Office Word known today.
Similar to its .DOC counterpart from Word, .WPS can provide the utility of a Word document with the exception of more advanced formatting elements and macros.
