Q2ID Conversion Notes & Limitations - Q2ID User Guide - 1

It is important to understand it is not possible to achieve a 100% conversion due to the fact that QuarkXPress and InDesign handle text, images and effects in differing ways. Simply stated: you wouldn’t want to be too brave by converting and blindly printing the new document. Instead, you will need to visually inspect the converted document and in some cases manually edit a few objects. Therefore, the primary goal of the conversion is to essentially move the basic document objects from one application to another, thus saving you a tremendous amount of time and effort as compared to recreating the entire document from scratch. Furthermore, the most ideal way to convert one desktop publishing file to another application is to simply avoid any features which are known to not convert well, such as features that are not supported by the destination application. In most real cases, however, this is not possible since you may already have a number of documents that you would rather not have to re-work, but instead wish to magically convert over to another application. With this in mind you should take some time and consider the following points regarding the conversion.
