• can create an IDML from any version InDesign file, even a CS5 or earlier version.
• allows users to view low-res previews, rather than gray tint boxes, as missing-image placeholders. (This gives users a better idea of what the image actually looks like.)
• can tell you the name of the original InDesign document.

How to Use the MarkzTools for InDesign plugins
• Go to the MarkzTools menu.
• Select “Convert InDesign Document“.
• Select the InDesign document that you want to convert.

How to Use the MarkzTools2 application
Markzware‘s MarkzTools2 is easy to use (drag and drop on main window -or- find & select in File>Convert menu). Without MarkzTools2, creating an IDML file might require launching the InDesign application, finding the file, opening it, going to File > Export, and saving out the IDML file. Why bother with a bunch of extra steps, when you can just drag-and-drop with MarkzTools2?
