I made a set of artboards in Designer and hoped I could open the file in Publisher with each artboard converted to a page. But apprantly this was not possible. Why should one wish to do that? Because, then it sould be exported as a multipage pdf, which in turn could be donverted to a powerpoint file. The artboards were imported into Publisher as layers, but I couyld not find a way to convert the layers to separate pages.  If Designer and Publisher had this functionality, they could together be used as a marvellous powerpoint making program.

But, still, Designer is a wonderful program.

As @Palatino shows, if you use File > Open in Publisher for a .afdesign document with multiple artboards you get a prompt to convert them to pages, which sounds like what you want, @orjwid.

But even in Designer, if you have multiple artboards, and use File > Export to create a PDF, you will get a multi-page PDF. There's no need to use Publisher for this.
