Hi

I have a file thats was done in Published which I need to convert to a PDF, however the problem is that the only program I have to do this is Freehand MX. The file is a timetable so it is made up of a lot of text which needs to be kept readable. I have tried just copy and paste and also saving the table as an image but in all of these cases one the image was converted to a PDF it looked really, really bad.

I have Freehand, Fireworks and Flash MX I also have Photoshop 6.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Cheers

This is such a common problem with Publisher. Nothing deals with it. Unless you can export it directly from Publisher to something more common and useful, you're more or less out of luck.

If you do have access to the Publisher application, there is a 14-day trial available for Jaws PDF Creater. This application will allow you to create PDF files through the print dialog.
