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, â€œMarkzware’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.â€
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, â€œHaving 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.â€
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.
