Convert InDesign documents to other formats and see what you can do with your layout content! Markzware‘s IDMarkz app
previews InDesign files and opens them in previous InDesign versions, QuarkXPress, Publisher, Acrobat, Illustrator, and
other beneficial apps. IDMarkz also converts InDesign files to PNG, TIFF, EPS, GIF, PDF, IDML, and JPEG image files,
so you can get the layout from an .indd file into many different formats.

You can be an InDesign 2020 user and be able to collaborate on projects with InDesign CS6 users. With IDMarkz, you can convert an InDesign 2020 or newer version InDesign file, on the macOS platform, into InDesign CS6. Then, InDesign CS6 users can open, view, and edit the content that was in the InDesign 2020 file.
