    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.:confused:

    PageZephyr and .pub files

    Markzware just released PageZephyr.

    [​IMG]

    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!!!!

    Or Graphic Converter for graphic portion

    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. :apple: :cool:

    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.
