You can probably open it in Adobe InDesign if you can save the file from MS Publisher to another format like a PageMaker file.

For instruktion look here: http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowled....cfm?id=332767

and if you have problem saving the file to a PageMaker file, look here:

Unable to open .pub files?

I am in the same situation. Are there any other programs and espcially freeware ones that can be used with MAC to download and open .pub files? I am able to open .doc with my Microsoft Word, I am able to open .wmv with QuickTime. I have not been able to view the .pub files yet.

Any freeware programs for MAC would be very helpful. I have found some for PC's, but that doesn't help me.

conversion

If you go to http://www.zamzar.com/, they convert all sorts of documents.

However the one I converted failed, so I don't know how well it works.

I just tried to do the same and received a message "Filetype conversion is not currently supported for .pub" but they list .pub under the "conversion types" at the top of the page.

PageZephyr and .pub files

Markzware just released PageZephyr.



Currently we support Adobe InDesign and Quark files, but stay tuned as we plan to support .pub files in the very near future!

You can download a free fully functional trial of PageZepher - if by chance you have InDesign or Quark content you need to recycle.

What other file types would you like PageZephyr to be comptabible with?

Zamzar download contaminated?

I just used Zamzar to convert a pub document for my Mac. One hour later I started receiving spontaneous, unsolicited auditory commercials. I have never had this happen with my 5 year old mac. More than a coincidence...
I'd stay away from Zamzar!!!!

Graphic converter converted the graphic portion of a "business card sheet.pub" for me, then pdfonline converted the whole thing to my gmail account so that I got the address & tel, too. It also converted a pub containing a jpg very nicely for the back of the card.

Good to have two tools ready.

Zamzar didn't work for me the first time I tried it, but the filename had spaces in it. When I removed the spaces and tried again, it worked perfectly.

My non-working filename was: Camp Flyer (1).pub

The filename that worked was: camp-flyer.pub

Publisher to Macintosh

PageZephyr can read and save Publisher files to a .rtf or .txt file.
From that point, import the data wherever you'd like!

There is no need for Publisher to be installed.
