Opening PMX files

Did your computer fail to open a PMX file? We explain what PMX files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your PMX files.

What is a PMX file?

The PMX file format is normally found in files that are linked to documents that are generated using the Adobe PageMaker desktop publishing software. The .pmx file contains a single or a number of PageMaker documents.

PageMaker is now an obsolete Adobe application which was replaced by Adobe InDesign. Since the main program that specifically runs .pmx files is now considered obsolete, support for PMX files has also been ceased. Nevertheless, users may still access the contents of a.pmx file by converting it to other Adobe- based readable file types like .pdf. PMX file conversion and exportation are made possible by the Adobe InDesign software.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
