Convert to IDML…
This menu item allows you to select a Quark file to convert directly to IDML without showing the Preview on screen. There are a few things that work differently about this menu item -
- This feature does not work with files listed in the Open Recent files menu
- You cannot change the path the IDML is created at, it will always be in the same folder as the file you select
Closes an open file. Or, if you have multiple files open, will close the active file.
Brings up the Export Window. This window can also be accessed by clicking on the Export icon on the document window toolbar. The Export icon is located on the left side of the Document Window Toolbar.
Export as IDML…
Brings up a window asking you where to Save the IDML file. Once you select a location, clicking the Choose button will export an IDML of the active document to that location.
Export as PDF…
Brings up a window asking you where to Save the PDF file. Once you select a location, clicking the Choose button will export a PDF of the active document to that location.
Pops up a Share Window where you can select where to share your file. The contents of the Share Menu are based on what you have setup under the macOS Preferences under Extensions/Share Menu.
These menu item selections allow you to open the active document in one of the following application, providing the application is properly loaded and licensed on your computer system.
Adobe InDesign – Selecting Open in InDesign will create an IDML of your Quark file and attempt to open it in the Default version of InDesign set in your macOS. In order for this to work, you must have a version of InDesign loaded on your computer and it must be InDesign CS4 or higher, as CS4 was the first version of InDesign that supported IDML.
QuarkXPress – In order for QXPMarkz to use this feature you must be using QuarkXPress 2017 or later, as earlier versions of Quark do not support IDML.
Affinity Publisher – Selecting Open in Affinity Publisher will initially bring up a message explaining how QXPMarkz will work with Affinity Publisher. Currently QXPMarkz sends a PDF to Affinity Publisher version 1.7 ands below and an IDML to Affinity Publisher 1.8 and higher.
Adobe Acrobat – Selecting Open in Adobe Acrobat will initially bring up a message explaining how QXPMarkz will work with Adobe Acrobat. We have only tested using Acrobat DC (the Creative Cloud version of Acrobat).
Adobe Illustrator – Selecting Open in Adobe Illustrator will initially bring up a message explaining how QXPMarkz will work with Adobe Illustrator.
Selecting Print will bring up a standard macOS Print Dialog allowing you to print a hard copy to your printer.
