    No, Publisher is a proprietary file format.

    If you have access to Publisher and the original files, you can export to PDF, but that is largely uneditable. Otherwise, its down to extracting the individual text and graphic elements and rebuilding in something else.

    Found these comments on a blog: no idea whether they work or not

    "I found a FREE converter that does a great job (offline, in the privacy of your home). It uses tricks from the open source guru's and is completely GPL.
    If I accomplished the insane task of showing my wife how to convert, then ANYONE can do this.

    "I found a solution on this page:
    https://www.pdfonline.com/"

    They purport to be able to convert to PDF without having the Publisher program.
    YMMV
