Convert InDesign CC 2015 (Creative Cloud) to IDML: MarkzTools2 Mac App

InDesign file users can convert InDesign CC 2015 (Creative Cloud) to IDML, via the MarkzTools2 Mac app from Markzware:

Do you have access to an InDesign CC 2015 document, but not to the Adobe InDesign layout application, itself? There is a desktop publishing solution that allows you to batch convert multiple InDesign files to IDML, via a single drag-and-drop.

Markzware has expertise in developing useful applications, XTensions, and plugins that offer solutions for your document production needs. Markzware’s MarkzTools Bundle includes the stand-alone MarkzTools2 application for Cloud-subscription-free file conversion from InDesign to IDML. The bundle also includes InDesign plugins that convert InDesign files to an earlier InDesign version.

If you need to create an IDML file, you could launch Adobe’s InDesign layout application, find the existing InDesign file to convert, open the file, go to File > Export, and save out the IDML file. Or you could just drop the file on MarkzTools2. Watch this video, to see how this Markzware app works:

Click the video above to see a demonstration of Markzware‘s standalone application, MarkzTools2, for file conversion from Adobe InDesign CC 2015 to IDML.

To begin the file conversion from InDesign to IDML, using MarkzTools2, you can either:
• drag the file icon to the main window in MarkzTools2, or
• find and select an INDD file, via the File -> Convert menu. When the document conversion is complete, you will be able to see the IDML file in the File -> Recent menu.

MarkzTools [bundle] has two components: A set of plug-ins for InDesign (see below) plus a standalone conversion tool, by which you can convert almost any InDesign to IDML files. IDML-files can be directly imported in InDesign Versions (CS4 and higher).

Ever tried to use InDesign CS6 to open InDesign CC 2015 documents? You can use the MarkzTools annual macOS subscription (available via the MarkzTools2 page on the Markzware website and through Authorized Resellers) to convert InDesign CC 2015 version files to IDML. This would allow CS6 users to open the IDML within InDesign CS6.

IDML is an open, XML-based file format that enables third-party developers and systems integrators to programmatically create, modify, and deconstruct InDesign documents outside the context of InDesign. IDML works with standard XML editing tools, making it easy to use in automated workflows. And with support for multi-threading in InDesign, working with the IDML file format is even faster.
