Microsoft Publisher 2010 format compatibility issues when opening Publisher 2007 file

  • I recently upgraded from Office 2007 to Office 2010 and am having issues with my Publisher 2007 files opening in the new Publisher 2010 program. The text and content is all still there when opened in the 2010 program, however much of the text formatting and alignment is lost/messed-up. Is there any way to open my Publisher 2007 files in Publisher 2010 without having to reformat the entire publication? Any suggestions on how to fix this would be GREATLY appreciated!
  • Hi there--

    Formatting problems can be so frustrating! I had a look around to see if I could find some suggestions for you. I did find this related problem in the Microsoft help that might help. You may want to try posting your query there as well, as the Microsoft folks might have some specific troubleshooting tips or have an idea if this is a known issue.

     

    Keep us posted on how it goes.

     

    Best,
