Recently updated technology can help print, publishing and graphic arts professionals to convert InDesign CC 2018 files for QXP document publishing. When QuarkXPress file users consider conversion solutions, they may take XTensions, such as ID2Q, into account.

“Our workflow is the Quark QPS system and it is not financially feasible to re-engineer and change our workflow. Most of our customer’s design in InDesign show when we set up new programs we need to recreate their design in Xpress. ID2Q has saved us countless hours and has helped make the conversion more accurate.”
– Marty Yeager, ID2Q reviewer
