Can someone explain why .xpt files appear to be impossible to edit? My CAM software uses .xpt files as templates for the CNC setup sheets. I want to make some changes but cannot edit these files. I have googled editors for this format but not found something that does what I want. If anyone can lead me to an editor that allows me to open, edit and save .xpt files that would be much appreciated. Or an alternative...

I can't upload the .xpt file I have. NDAs...

TIA

Sometimes have to compress files into .zip for uploading to a forum. But, I have seen programs in the past that didn't allow editing their included template files. If a file does open it may be necessary to save it as a different name then maybe that one can be opened and edited.

I don't think @bigseb wants to upload anything.
He's writing about NDAs, which are Non-Disclosed-Agreements, which means, as far I understand, the files are confidential.

This. Tbh the files are nothing special, I'm just allowed to upload them here. Being able to edit them would help optimize my workflow though, hence the query as to how.

Have you asked your vendor if .xpt files are in a proprietary format, and that's why there's no public tools for it?

You're all confusing SAS software's data export format with this specific app, which is industrial CAD/CAM and milling. Don't be fooled by the same file extension.

Yup. They weren't to clued up about it either. It's for a 3rd party plug-in for MCAM called X+.
