“…ID2Q… The amount of frustration it saved me was
worth every penny I spent on it without a doubt!!”

– Bonnie Chastain, graphic designer

ID2Q, a Quark XTension for  InDesign data conversion from Markzware, can convert InDesign to Quark documents. You can reduce costs to convert InDesign and save time when you create a QuarkXPress document, simply by using ID2Q by Markzware.

“I googled it out of desperation!” Bonnie Chastain exclaimed. Chastain is a freelance graphic designer whose design work involves creating everything from business cards to billboards, brochures to catalogs and magazines, as well as newspaper ads to lawn signs. “I am a long-time user of Quark and began working with it in 1991. I just love Quark and can simply not get used to InDesign. Recently, I had to pick up a 20-page magazine project that was designed in InDesign. I purchased Markzware’s ID2Q, brought the project into QuarkXPress, and took it from there. The amount of frustration it saved me was worth every penny I spent on it without a doubt!!”

As a graphic designer, Chastain receives a variety of projects that can be quite large. Time is money, and with Markzware conversion tools such as ID2Q, it saves a lot of grief especially when always under such tight deadlines. “I have projects that range from 16 to 230 pages, which I set up in Quark with master pages and style sheets, etc. These files end up going to language translation companies, which require the files to be provided in InDesign. Sometimes, I am asked to produce projects in InDesign. I can do that without too much grief. However, on my multiple-page files (as much as 200 pages), I prefer to design and work in Quark. It’s like a carpenter using someone else’s tools – or a musician playing someone else’s instrument. My favorite tool is QuarkXPress, so I create and build there, then run things into InDesign for client or other outside purposes that demand it to be provided that way. Having Markzware’s tools to help smooth the transitions that I need to get these projects completed in an efficient manner has been just awesome.”

ID2Q, a Quark XTension by Markzware, helps you to convert InDesign to QuarkXPress documents quickly and easily. Just select “Convert InDesign Document” from the QuarkXPress Utilities menu.
