Markzware, the leading developer and inventor of patented preflighting technology and content conversion today announced an upgrade to its popular content conversion solution, ID2Q v5 Adobe InDesign for both Macintosh and Windows. ID2Q v5 allows you to open InDesign documents within QuarkXPress 7 or 8 right within Markzware ID2Q v5.

“ID2Q is a wonderful investment, and it saved me and my client a lot of work. Indeed, I would tell other Quark professionals not to be intimidated by Adobe and InDesign. If you’ve got an InDesign template, and you’re not familiar with the program, get the Markzware plugin, do it in Quark, and send it to the printer,” said Hollis Barnhart, a freelance graphic and layout designer.

ID2Q v5 (Adobe InDesign to QuarkXPress) is an XTension for Quark and supports Adobe InDesign CS5. This QuarkXPress XTension provides users a quick and easy way to migrate InDesign content into a new QuarkXPress document. The InDesign to Quark file conversion is enabled by selecting Convert InDesign Document under the Markzware menu item within QuarkXPress 8 or 7.

With the ID2Q Quark XTension, intricate details of the content in the InDesign document are instantly re-created within QuarkXPress. Items that Markzware ID2Q can convert from InDesign include: page positioning, fonts and styles, images, and text attributes, as well as tables, layers, blends, runarounds, linked text boxes & anchor boxes, and pantone colors and other color models.
