File extension Names

So if you are new to customizing a CAD system and you are just learning the ropes there are some basic file extension names that you will want to know what they are used for. I have put together a small list and their "definitions" that I have found handy.

File Extensions and What They Mean:
.dsd = batch plot sheet set listing, holds the sheet names to access
.dwf = image of a drawing, does not update when drawing updates
.dwg = drawing
.dwt = template, used to create your new drawings with the settings previously configured
.exe = executable file, can be used for a self-extracting zip file
.pdf = image file, non-editable by CAD, typically used with Adobe
.txt = text file
.zip = zip file
