publisher

Microsoft publisher has been around for a long time but  it has never been able to run on Apple computers.   If you’re like me you  probably have friends who have Microsoft publisher files they occasionally email you. Sadly there is no way to open  a Microsoft publisher file on a Mac, until now…

Here are two websites that can convert Microsoft publisher files to PDF.

You can then open, read and print the pdf file on your Mac. You can even edit them.

I have tested both of these conversion sites and they both work pretty well.  They are both free.

Site one is easier, to use, just read the instructions below, but I’ve included two sites just in case one of them goes down or doesn’t work for you.

    I want to convert a Publisher file to read on my Mac. Of the two sites you recommend:
    1 – onine2pdf.com and
    2 – publishertopdf.com

    the 1st site has a size limit – the second site appears to have converted the doc successfully but I have no way to access the pdf. It says they store it on their website securely for 6 hours before deleting – but there is no link that I can find to actually access the converted pdf.

    Suggestions please?

      After a few seconds or a few minutes (depending on how big the publisher file is) a big orange box will appear that says ‘Free Download’. Click on that box.

    I used the publishertopdf.com website and it was quick and easy. Thank you so much for making a frustrating thing so easy. I make things in publisher at home and sometimes forget to convert them before I send them to myself at home. This will be a well used tip.
