Do anyone know if there is a plug-in from MS publisher to InDesign or Illustrator?

 

I need native file changes in MS publisher and drive a mac... so nada from MS on this.

 

Thanks,

I agree with Derek's answer. There are one of two solutions I can see but all require a third piece of software. In any instance, the artwork has to be made into a PDF first from the machine the publisher file was made on:

It also won't be an exact replica and will need work. I recommend making a layer in the document that either plug-in creates and use the multipagepdfimporter script to put the PDF into the document so elements from the PDF can be traced or adjusted from a background layer. The script can be found here: https://indesignsecrets.com/zanelli-releases-multipageimporter-for-importing-both-pdf-and-indd-files.php

No there isn't such a plugin, you could experiment to see if you could create a PDF from publisher and use this third-party plugin to convert from PDF to InDesign:

Thanks Derek,

 

Alas I'm going to need to make chages and save out as a native Publisher document... It's a cross platfor thing with my company. Probably have to go to the MS side of things.

I appreciate your suggestion!

How many changes? I'm a Windows guy with Office 365 so if it's not complicated send me a private message.

 

If it's involved, we can discuss something mutually beneficial.
