PDFMarkz SE Conversion Notes & Limitations - PDFMarkz User Guide - SE for Windows

Batch Processing

You can batch process PDFs and have them open in InDesign, only if none of the jobs have missing fonts or images. Otherwise, only the first job in the batch will open in InDesign.

if you enable the Open In settings in PDFMarkz SE (for example you select Open in and then System Default), only the first PDF file will open in InDesign if any of the files in the batch have missing fonts or images.

If none of the jobs in the batch have missing fonts or images, then all files in the batch should open in InDesign. Thus, the issue is how InDesign is handling popup dialogs during batch conversion. FYI – you will run into this same issue if you batch open InDesign files within InDesign itself.

If you Disable the Open In setting in PDFMarkz SE, then all files regardless of whether they have missing fonts or images will convert to IDML. Please be aware that if any of the jobs have missing images and you have not set PDFMarkz SE to create previews for either All or Missing images, the IDML job created will have missing images as no lo-res previews would be generated.

Status Window doesn’t update when closed

If you convert files and the Status Window is not open, it will not update the converted file count. If you wish to see an accurate list of the files you have converted, first open the Status Window by doing Control-S and then begin converting your files.

Open IDML in QuarkXPress cause Quark to open in Demo Mode

If you set PDFMarkz SE to automatically open IDML files in QuarkXPress, this may bring Quark up in Trail mode. To address this issue, please start up QuarkXPress first, then start up PDFMarkz SE and convert your PDF files. The IDML file sent to QuarkXPress while it is open will not cause Quark to go into trial/demo mode.
