Converting PageMaker files into Publisher 2003

Hi!

I´m using PageMaker 6.5 but will soon migrate to Publisher 2003.
Does anyone knows if it´s possible to convert files made in PageMaker to
Publisher 2003?

Why go backwards? Go for InDesign. But if you absolutely *have to* (who's
holding the gun to your head?) then go with Publisher 2007 because of it's
ability to save as a PDF directly.

It´s not my decision...
So is that a yes to my question?

No, PageMaker files will not convert. The best you could do is save them as
images or copy/paste.

Whose decision is it? Pass on Matt's comments to them - he knows what
he's talking about.

(And there is no simple way to convert PageMaker files to Publisher.)

Re: Converting PageMaker files into Publisher 2003

Thank´s for your answer!

If we choose to run Publisher 2007 instead, can I then convert my PageMaker
files to Publisher 2007?

Re: Converting PageMaker files into Publisher 2003

The only way you can convert PageMaker files is through copy/paste (maybe). You
can "recover text from any file" in Word. It might work okay. Text will recover
better in Word than Publisher.
