IDML Files from InDesign Files

If you handle InDesign files (INDD documents), but do not subscribe to Adobe’s Creative Cloud (CC), you can still create IDML (InDesign Markup Language) files. Markzware’s IDMarkz application can quickly generate the IDML documents, for you.

Markzware develops preview, preflight, and file conversion software for print, publishing and graphic arts workflows. Markzware’s IDMarkz is a flexible macOS application that processes Adobe InDesign files for use in many file formats, including IDML, Affinity Publisher, PDF, Illustrator, QuarkXPress, PNG, JPG, TIFF, EPS, and more.
