IDMarkz can be set up, to completely automate the process of converting .indd files and opening them in the user’s chosen DTP application. Do you work in Affinity Publisher, QuarkXPress, or InDesign CS6? Then, you can set up Markzware‘s IDMarkz, so that you can double click an InDesign file and, within a few seconds, IDMarkz will convert and open it in Publisher. After setup, all you have to do is double-click the file in Finder.
