Uploaded a "page" file ... LibreOffice Draw could read it but did a z-index mistake.

Would be very fine if you would upload a screenshot which show how the doc should look like.

I didnt produce this file and sorry i dont have MS Publisher software so i cannot upload a screenshot.

However, I guess that the main title frame should be on top of the images so as to be visible (which is not the case when opening the .PUB with LibreOffice Draw). That's for sure.

And I guess too that the topleft name and adress frame should be entirely visible too... unless the initial work is very badly layed out. When opened with Draw this topleft text is not totaly visible... maybe due to an incorrect too big font size ?

Oh, I discovered that zamzar [^] can convert .PUB to PDF.
I tried it with the file and the result is convincing.
It appears my guesses were partly incorrect : it looks like Draw only has an issue with the font choice.
I uploaded the Zamzar issued PDF.
PS : i've never tested the import with scribus.

The file I uploaded to bug 11533 is not imported properly. See the attached PDF to see how it's expected to look like.

Yep, the WordArt at the top isn't imported properly, as libmspub doesn't support that.

Sure, but it's not just the WordArt part ;) I know that libmspub is still young, and this will be certainly improved in the future.

HappyGhost issue hasn't improved it seems.
page présentation has 2 fonts that are not installed on my system so it's hard to say how well it imported.
