How do I convert PageMaker to Word or Publisher?

  1. Default How do I convert PageMaker to Word or Publisher?

    I don't have PageMaker but someone gave me a bunch of files that are in that format. I need a way to convert them so I can use them. Is there any way to do this, even if it means buying other software? I don't want to spend hundreds on PageMaker just for this.

    AFAIK, the only thing you can convert PM files to is InDesign.

    You could download the 30 day demo if all you need is the text out of
    the files. That would give you enough time to export it out as RTF or
    simply copy/paste it.

    I would under no circumstances consider buying PageMaker at this late date. It is obsolete, and Adobe has announced there will be no more development.

    As an addition to Bob's suggestion, if you download the free trial, you could also use it to create PDF files from the PageMaker documents, if you do need to retain the formatting but do not need to edit the result.

    Note too that you will need the original linked graphics and all the fonts if you either convert to InDesign or PDF.
