Converting a Word doc to PDF without using OneDrive or Substitute

I need to be able to convert word documents into pdfs in my power app, but all the methods I have found online either require me to use the substitute function (which does not work because I don't have thumbnails) or by using power automate using OneDrive (which I do not have a valid login for). Does anyone know of a non premium connector in power automate that achieves the same result without using OneDrive, or a way to use the substitute function to change docs into pdfs without using Thumbnails? Or is there another way that I'm not even considering?

Hi @QuoteOnQuote,

Do you want to convert doc to PDF without premium connector or OneDrive?

 

Actually, there is no OOTB action to achieve this without premium connector or OneDrive, you could try to convert to DOCX using the following action :

Then you could configure the flow as below:

Here is some docs for your reference:
