    I know this is old, but hoping someone will see my request and is able to help me. I watched this training and it’s a pretty good one to help those of us who used InfoPath move on to Power Apps. However, based on the title of the article I really thought it would help me “convert” old forms. Does anyone know how I could do that? We no longer have InfoPath at work and I need to convert the .xsn files to anything whether pdf, Microsoft Forms or in a PowerApp, first to share the form and secondly to reuse them in a new, updated Microsoft product (ultimately to use on SharePoint 2013/2016). Thanks for any help as I’ve not been able to find a non-code, non third-party product answer.
