Markzware Q2ID v3 for Macintosh Allows Adobe InDesign CS3 Users to Open QuarkXPress 7 Documents


Designers, print­ers, cre­ative pro­fes­sion­als strug­gling with re-creating intri­cate details of con­tent from QuarkXPress doc­u­ments in Adobe InDesign can now save count­less hours with this excit­ing release that now sup­ports InDesign v5 (CS3) for Macintosh.

Michael Deme, edi­tor of Adventure Cyclist Magazine said, “Markzware’s Q2ID prod­uct has been a real time saver for our pro­duc­tion staff. For peo­ple who pre­fer using Adobe InDesign over QuarkXPress, it is a tremen­dous ben­e­fit to be able to con­vert an XPress doc­u­ment for updat­ing ver­sus recre­at­ing the InDesign doc­u­ment from scratch. And its ease of use is an added ben­e­fit. I’m glad we have Q2ID in our pro­duc­tion toolkit.”

The Q2ID doc­u­ment con­ver­sion tool saves count­less hours of scan­ning, re-keying and for­mat­ting. This prod­uct con­verts and trans­forms files cre­at­ed with QuarkXPress on both Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh sys­tems, into new Adobe InDesign files.

According to Becky Pronia, art direc­tor of Brown Derby International Wine Center, “Having Q2ID meant that when I switched to InDesign I did­n’t have to wor­ry about rebuild­ing all of the mag­a­zine pages I had built in QuarkXpress. All I have to do is open the file and it’s auto­mat­i­cal­ly con­vert­ed to the for­mat I need. I nev­er even have to think about the pro­gram. I loaded it once and it’s been sav­ing my hide with fast con­ver­sions ever since.”

If you have QuarkXPress v3.3 through 7.x files, you can now eas­i­ly con­vert these with the Q2ID plug-in that now sup­ports Adobe InDesign v5 (CS3) for Macintosh. A ver­sion com­pat­i­ble with InDesign v5 (CS3) for Windows is under devel­op­ment and will be released in the near future.
