Now For Adobe Creative Suite 5!
Migrate All Your QuarkXPress Content into a new Adobe InDesign CS5 document
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SANTA ANA, California, June 3, 2010 — Markzware, the leading developer of preflighting, data extraction and conversion software, including plugins for Adobe, today released an upgrade of Q2ID v5 (Quark to InDesign), its highly-acclaimed file conversion plug-in for Adobe InDesign CS5. Q2ID v5 is a quick, easy and affordable method for migrating QuarkXPress content into a new Adobe InDesign CS5 document.
Macintosh is now available
This new version boasts full plug-in support for Adobe InDesign CS5 or CS4 and can convert documents in QuarkXPress versions 3.3 through 8. Adobe CS5 plug in, Q2ID v5, one of the Markzware plugins for Adobe, is developed with the needs of the graphic arts industry in mind. Q2ID translates the intricate content details in a Quark file and instantly recreates it within Adobe CS5. It can convert a file from Quark to InDesign, while including such items as page positioning, color models, fonts and styles, images, and text attributes, as well as tables, layers, blends, runarounds, linked text boxes & anchored boxes, Pantone and other color models.
Markzware’s Q2ID conversion technology will save you countless hours of scanning, re-keying and formatting. Whether you choose Q2ID for Apple Macintosh or Microsoft Windows (to be released soon!), Q2ID is compatible with Adobe InDesign CS5 and can convert Quark files, authored on either system, and transform them.
Michael Zack, graphic artist for the Oakland County Government in Oakland, Michigan said, “When you don’t use Quark on a regular basis it is quite daunting to convert a document manually. With Q2ID it is as easy as opening up any document in InDesign. You really don’t have to think about it.”
“Q2ID is truly an amazing piece of engineering and the simplicity of it use is great….It’s the best $200 I spent. Paid for itself the day I bought it. Can’t get a much better ROI than that.” Caleb Clauset, Design and Consulting 2CDesign.
Hollis Barnhart, freelance graphic and layout designer, said “Q2ID is indispensable. It was a wonderful investment, and it saved me and a client a lot of work.”
“Over the years, I have found the Markzware Conversion Tools to be some of the best written and easy to use products on the market. The latest upgrade of Q2ID is the one major tool that Adobe “should have” written into InDesign.” Said Allen Kalka, Web-n-Design.
