How to Batch Convert InDesign CS5-CC 2017 Files to IDML: MarkzTools2

How to Batch Convert InDesign CS5-CC 2017 Files to IDML: MarkzTools2

Markzware explains how to batch convert InDesign CS5CC 2017 (Adobe Creative Suite 5-Creative Cloud 2017) files to IDML, via MarkzTools2:

When an InDesign (INDD) document user tries to open a higher version of InDesign CC, the Adobe InDesign application asks if you want to convert to IDML. (IDML stands for InDesign Markup Language.) If you approve, it sends your document to a server and returns an IDML from which it creates a new document.

This process can be slow and does not guarantee document security. An application from Markzware can speed up the file conversion process, by allowing you to batch convert multiple INDD files to IDML.

Markzware provides unique solutions to customers that want to convert their files from one file format to another. Markzware’s MarkzTools2 Bundle includes an application that can convert InDesign files to IDML.

You can turn multiple Adobe InDesign CS5 through CC 2017 files into InDesign Markup Language files, using MarkzTools2. For more information on MarkzTools2, watch this video:
