Hello,

I am writing to ask if Affinity Publisher can open and use Microsoft Publisher files?

Can't seem to see a post on it on the forum.

 

Thanks

Gren

There are posts about importing ms .pub files. The forum search is just too greedy. 

The answer is no, it can't.

Hello,

Thanks for the info and help.

I truly did do searches but I typed out full Microsoft Publisher and not just ".pub".

Thanks again for the help.

Hi Gren--I had no doubt you did do a search!

It's that the forum software's search function mostly, well, sucks.

Whenever I search for something, it varies from finding nothing or the search may have found something relevant but buried in the pages upon pages of findings. Advance Search can be more helpful, but isn't obvious to get to.

As regards MS Publisher files, you can manually copy text and place the images all over again or go the PDF route.  For text, you may be able to export from MS Publisher as rtf/docx (I cannot remember if it does this) and place the text etc.
