Funktioniert mustergültig ...

Öffne relativ viele InDesign-Dateien - hergestellt mit der Creative Cloud-Version - von Grafikern zur Weiterverarbeitung. Ich bin aber nicht gewillt meine gekaufte Version DesignWebPremium CS6 zu "schmeissen" und mich via der Adobe-Mietversion CC "abcashen" zu lassen ...Ihr MarkzTools2 ist ein zuverlässlicher Partner bei der Umwandlung ins IDML-Format. Auch ist MarkzTools2 eine Hilfe bei beschädigten InDesign-Dokumenten. Ein Produkt, das seinen Preis wert ist!

Saved me lots of tears and frustration

I had to tell you thanks for having a great product… Your MarkzTools2 stand-alone application for conversion to IDML format did what it was supposed to do when a Jr. designer decided to upgrade to ID 2017 without checking with the IT department first. On top of that ID 2017 seems to have a crash issue when trying to save down so I was thinking we would have to eat some hours to fix these issues. You have personally saved me lots of tears and frustration.
