A client recently sent me a series of Microsoft Publisher files, each containing ideas for a logo design, although it turned out that I didn’t have a copy of Publisher on the computer I was using.
I sent an email to some of my friends to ask if they could open the files and print them to PDF. That way I could view the content on any computer to get an idea of what my client wanted.
One kind friend had the files printed to PDF within a few minutes, whilst another directed me to the following website:
This free PDF conversion service supports a range of file types, including .doc, .rtf, .ppt, .pps, .pub, .xls, .mht, .txt, .jpg, .bmp, .gif, .tiff and more.
Simply upload the file from your computer, choose a file name for your PDF, enter your email address, and click the ‘convert to PDF’ button. You should receive your new PDF file within minutes.
Had I known about PDF Online before receiving the Publisher files I would’ve been able to sort to issue out myself.
Have you ever come un-stuck with file type issues?
