Markzware, publisher of data conversion software, file conversion and other software, offers PDF2DTP for InDesign CS6, an Adobe CS6 plugin to convert PDF to InDesign (INDD), as well as PDF2DTP for QuarkXPress, a Quark XTension to convert PDF to QuarkXPress QXP. PDF2DTP for InDesign CS6, a Markzware InDesign plugin for Adobe Creative Suite, was used by a data conversion software tester to convert a PDF file to InDesign. Here is a real excerpt of what happened:
Here is a situation that happens all the time. The client calls in to let you know that the original Quark file has been lost, and all that is available is the PDF. Oh, and another thing – the client doesn’t have access to the images either. Is this a problem? The answer is Yes!
So your answer is, well I will have to open each page in Photoshop at high resolution, and crop and clean up, then export the text from the PDF via Acrobat. Then I can either send you the exported text to check ore and re-key if needed, or I can work with what I have and we’ll need a very thorough proof read and revision session.

Then I happened to come across PDF2DTP, which saved me a day or two simply processing the images. I was able to start working on the text into a new InDesign file, and copy and paste the images from the converted file!
Brilliant! This not only saved me time, but saved the editor retyping the whole thing! What got me, was somehow it preserved where the original designer had put little bits of text into separate text boxes on tricky text run-arounds, so I was able to keep the text making sense.
