Convert Publisher® to PDF

This tutorial shows how to convert a Publisher document to a PDF using a virtual PDF printer driver such as novaPDF. Once installed, novaPDF lets you create PDF files from any Windows application that supports printing, thus to convert a publication to a PDF you need to download and install novaPDF first.

Microsoft Office Publisher is a desktop publishing application that allows creating publications for print or web. Once your print publication is designed if you need to send it for review, physically printing or share it with your team, it's recommended that you convert it to a PDF. Document sharing is easier using PDF files, because the recipient does not need to have Publisher installed in order to open the PDF (being also multi-platform, same PDF can be opened both on Windows and Mac powered systems) and by converting it the original design of the publication remains unaltered. novaPDF is a PDF creator that once installed it offers an option to print your publication to a PDF file - simply choose novaPDF as a printer and once you click the Print button your publication will be converted to a PDF.
