Have you even wanted to convert .pub documents to .doc or .docx (i had the same problem today)? Well, now all your problems are solved. This is how you do it:

1. Go to publisher and open your document in .pub format.

2. Click anywhere outside the page on the first page

3. Hold down “Ctrl” and press “A”

4. Hold down “Ctrl” and press press “C” (to copy)

4. Now open a new microsoft word document and click anywhere on the page

5. Hold down “Ctrl” and press “V” (to paste)

6. Create a new page in word

7. Go to the next page on your publisher document and repeat from step 3 and on until all pages are converted

8. Save the word document

    You still need to have Publisher on your machine in order to open up a *.pub file. Otherwise, it will not work.

      Once you convert the documents, you will not need publisher anymore to open the outputed converted files. The formatting might get messed up though.

    Why would you not just save as a .docx. Publisher has the save option, and .docx is one of the options.

      in publisher, the “save as” option has the file type “.docx” listed. The only problem is that the “.docx” save option only allows saving the text from the document. If the document has any pictures and/or objects (like shapes, for example) added to it, it will not save properly using that method.

    An online yearbook hosted on a single server can be changed by simply hacking that server.
    Believe it or cold the Hypervisor security layer operates on the all PPE (core processor) and uses one the reserved SPE (SPU).
    Because trading online is basically exchanging data
    over the Internet, so security of data such as your personal information is of important.
