Open Creative Cloud Documents in CS6, CS5.5 or CS5

Do you receive files from Creative Cloud users? Are you tired of contacting them and asking them to send you an IDML file in addition to the native InDesign file? MarkzTools for InDesign allows you to convert their Creative Cloud version InDesign files directly to CS6, CS5.5 or CS5. No IDML involved.

Let It Rain

The Cloud is not for everyone. We know that a lot of InDesign users have chosen to stick with CS6 rather than move to the Creative Cloud. But you may run into the problem where you receive a document from somebody who is working with CC. InDesign CS6 cannot open those CC documents on its own. That is where MarkzTools comes to the rescue. This simple to use plugin will allow you to open those CC, CC 2014, CC 2015, and CC 2017 documents in CS6, CS5.5 or CS5, freeing you from the cloud!

So relieved that I found you guys

I am so relieved that I found you guys – this was stressing me out. People don’t want stress. Sure, they can call the original owner and ask them to take time out of their busy schedule to down-save, when that is possible, but that can take time. Not to mention, many do not want to bug what is often their customer, with such a task. Often they may not know where the file ultimately came from, it just landed on their desk from another customer or department.

Brilliant idea!

Just sent out a heads up to a few people about this, which I have just bought! Brilliant idea! And no doubt produced with the usual Markzware Panache!
