Question: I have a yellow box behind some text after it converted, how do I get rid of it?
Answer: The Yellow highlighted text indicates substituted Glyphs. You can turn off the highlighting by unchecking “highlight substituted Glyphs” in the Composition section of Adobe InDesign’s Preferences.
Question: I have a pink box behind some text after it converted, how do I get rid of it?
Answer: The pink highlighted text indicates substituted fonts. You can turn off the highlighting by unchecking highlight “substituted fonts” in the Composition section of InDesign’s Preferences. This is usually caused when the person creating the original QuarkXPress document used a style on a font without an actual font being present, such as a false bold.
Question: Can I convert a QuarkXPress document created on Windows into an Adobe InDesign file using the Mac version of Q2ID?
Answer: Yes, you can convert a QuarkXPress Windows file into an InDesign Mac file. The InDesign file format is platform independent, meaning both Mac and Windows InDesign files can be opened by both the Mac and Windows versions of InDesign.
Question: What if my file will not convert, or Adobe InDesign crashes, when I try to convert a document?
