Markzware Releases Its Popular Plug-in Q2ID Version 2 QuarkXPress 7 to InDesign
Markzware, the leading developer of preflighting, data extraction and conversion software is pleased to announce the immediate release of the popular update of Q2ID (v2) – QuarkXPress To Adobe InDesign. This is an Adobe InDesign Plug-in and requires an installed and supported version of Adobe InDesign v3 (CS) or v4 (CS2) prior to installing Q2ID.
This important upgrade enables QuarkXPress files from version 3.3 to 7.0 to be converted for use with InDesign CS or CS2. Q2ID (v2) is a one-stop solution that simply imports the majority of the original QuarkXPress features and settings intact into a InDesign file. “Q2ID (v2) is a noticeable time-saver that reduces the daunting process of re-keyboarding and formatting data. Creating a data conversion tool is technically very difficult and whenever data is converted we suggest that the user proof their work before printing,” said Patrick Marchese, president of Markzware.
“Q2ID (v2) is a big time saver. I’ve helped hundreds of companies make the Quark to InDesign transition. Without Q2ID it was a matter of backsaving to Quark 4 and often the client didn’t have all the versions, particularly Quark 5. Now even Quark 7 files can be converted directly. I love it!” Clint Funk, Funk & Associates.
Some of the items that Q2ID will convert into InDesign include fonts and style sheets; linked images and graphics, color blends, linked and anchored text boxes, CMYK specifications, Pantone selections and other color models and page positioning.
