Site one: http://online2pdf.com

With this site you upload a Microsoft publisher file and the site automatically converts it and then you download it via your Safari web browser as a PDF file.

1. Go to online2pdf.com

2. Click on the browse button and upload your publisher file.

3. The file will automatically download  as a safari download.

4.  Click on the download and it will open in preview and you can print it.

This has Google ads along the right hand sidebar so I assume it is funded by Google advertising.


 Site two: http://www.publishertopdf.com

This site is similar.

1.  Go to publishertopdf.com

2.   Drag your file on this icon to upload it.

3. When the orange download box appears, click on it. This can take a few minutes for large files.

This second site doesn’t have any advertising.

I have tested both these sites and they both worked for the file I was converting which was a four-page document including text and images. I couldn’t see that one site worked any better than the other.

    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.
