I have been sent a .pub file that I cannot open as I do not have a publishing program. Does anyone know of a free program that I could use to open this file ? I do not want to download a Microsoft Office trial.

A pub file is a Microsoft Publisher file which can be difficult to open with another program. The originator should not have sent it in pub format but instead of used pdf.

Thanks Woolwell , yes I know and agree with you !

LibreOffice may well be able to open it.

Thanks Woolwell, I had forgotten the old Open Office , now Libre. I was able to open the doc with the draw program. Thanks for the reminder.
