    Microsoft Publisher converter?

    I am hoping it is possible to convrt a .pub file into anything that I can view on my Mac...but it seems from my research that this is not possible.

    Any ideas?

    PowerBook 100 | 4 RAM | OS 7.2

    This was brought up once a while back and I don't remember a solution being found, at least not one that allowed any editing. You could install a PDF printer or distiller on a PC with Publisher, then convert the files to PDF (or possibly print to a PS file and convert that)...but that's about it.

    There has never been a filter to convert .pub documents into any other format.

    Way to make this site welcoming! Numpty

    The link is a link to a online .pub file converter
    I found this thread googling how to convert publisher files on a Mac and thought the above website would be a solution for anyone else unfortunate enough to stumble accross this forum.

    Excellent file converter for Mac!!

    For anyone (like me) who stumbled across this post looking for a good online converter, I just want you to know that Rexscar is correct. ZAMZAR IS LEGITIMATE and worked amazingly well for me (perfectly converted a .pub file into both a pdf and word doc!!)
    http://www.zamzar.com

    You can even find a review/user ratings on CNET. Thanks for the good advice, Rexscar.

    Simbalala, you could be throwing people off a good source by speaking of something that you apparently haven't checked out.
