InDesign to QuarkXPress
Convert Multiple Files
How to batch convert multiple files when you convert InDesign to QuarkXPress with data conversion software to import InDesign CS6 into QuarkXPress 9… Use the ID2Q QuarkXPress XTension by Markzware, publisher of document conversion tools that support Adobe Creative Suite INDD, QXP, and other DTP file types:
Alright, we’re starting up QuarkXPress 9.3. ID2Q will convert all versions of InDesign CS6 and lower right into QuarkXPress 9. Now, the way this works, Markzware’s ID2Q is up top in the “QuarkXPress” menu item. Under the “Markzware” menu item, there is an “ID2Q” option and “Convert InDesign Document”.
Alright. You go “ID2Q” > “Convert InDesign Document”. You get your “Convert InDesign Document” Open dialogue. You cruise on over to the folder where you need to convert the files, and we see all the individual files here. Simply go and click as many as you want to open or convert from InDesign CS6 or lower right into QuarkXPress with one click.
So, the way I did that is just hit, just like on the Macintosh, you hit Shift, you click once, and then you hold down the Shift key, and then you can drag down as many as you like; or, just like on the Macintosh, you can click once, hold down the Apple key, then, you can then select multiple files. And then you simply click “Open”.
Let ID2Q convert all that InDesign content right into QuarkXPress 9 for you. There she goes, busy with re-creation of all the files. One after the other will convert without any human intervention. This would take hours of reworking for a human to do, but look at that! In mere seconds, we’re done. You can now go in and File > Save As, or Save, these files out and you’ll have brand new QuarkXPress content right from Adobe InDesign.
Well, that’s been your quick tip for the day. We get asked a lot, “Can ID2Q convert multiple files in one go within QuarkXPress?” and the answer is “Yes.” You just saw how. Thank you. David Dilling from Markzware, signing off. Have a great day!
