While my need for converting Quark documents becomes less with each passing year--I still need to convert them. My only options are to re-create the entire document from scratch or use the Markzware plug-in to convert the file.
The time savings of the plug-in can pay for itself in one job (depending on the complexity of the files). A well-built Quark document easily converts to a well-built InDesign document. I wouldn't want to work without having this plug-in in my "toolbox",

works great for a texter

First I thought, this cannot work for my texting business. I tried it and ... WOW... amazing! Every text is converted with the correct font, parameter etc... Unbelievable! Every page looks still the same in converted InDesign as in original QuarkXPress! It saves me a lot of work when a client upgrades from QuarkXPress to InDesign, and the best: I calculated the converting separately and got the money that I have spended for the tool ten times back. Thank you guys! your textiest man alive from hamburg germany

Crash Indesign CC 2017

Sorry my English is not perfect!!
I upgrade Indesign CC 2015 to CC 2017. With Indesign CC 2015 Q2ID (Q2IDv3_CC) work without problem, but when I try to install "Q2ID_for_CC2017_Mac_v4.00.107mc62", Indesign CC 2017 crash and it's impossible to work with indesign. I must uninstall Q2ID to use Indesign CC 2017.
Mac OSX El Capitan 10.11.6 - -Adobe Indesign CC 2017.0

This was a problem caused by a problematic installer. The issue can be resolved by doing a manual install or downloading a new package with the fixed installer.

Works Great

The conversion works great with all elements converting perfectly. This has saved us countless hours, if we had to recreate every document to ID. They also have great tech support if a glitch happens.

Seamless Conversions

Had over a decades worth of QXD files and didn't look forward to having to remake any of them. Q2ID is absolutely seamless, it even simplifies some of the things we had to do in Quark to make a page or design work. It converts multi-page files flawlessly too.
