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.

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

Site one is obviously easier, 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.

  1. Modern Microsoft Office variants (from 2013 I think) have the option to save Publisher files as PDFs too.

    The second one is a waste of time, just fyi. I had to enter my email and then it said it would send me the file in 30 minutes unless I downloaded the application. The first one converted it online and automatically downloaded within 30 seconds – worked perfectly. Thanks!

    The first one worked great really easy to use, liked that I didn’t have to sign up/subscribe to use it. The only drawback I found was when I tried to copy/paste some text it came out in another language.
    I didn’t bother with the second site when the first one worked straight away.
