.pub file extension
- Microsoft Publisher document.
There are no reported applications that will open .pub files other than Microsoft Publisher, nor have Microsoft released a viewer. Microsoft Publisher can save/export into other formats (but this isn't helpful if you have a .pub file but not Microsoft Publisher.)
The site www.pdfonline.com/convert_pdf.asp provides a free on-line service for converting .pub files to .pdf files (which are generally much easier to open and read because a .pdf reader is freely available). They will convert the .pub file to a .pdf file and email you the .pdf file, thereby providing an effective means of viewing the contents of the .pub file.
Can you add to this? Do you know of any applications not already listed which will work with .pub files, view .pub files or open .pub files? Are you able to contribute any additional reference information or file format information about .pub files or have you spotted any errors or omissions? If so please let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org - Thank you.
