Markzware explains how to convert InDesign CC 2018 files to IDML without Creative Cloud, via the MarkzTools2 application:

Often, creative professionals need to work with various versions of Adobe InDesign (INDD) documents and applications, including Creative Cloud (CC) versions. These professionals may also need to create an InDesign Markup Language (IDML) document.

”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.”

Markzware strives to develop useful conversion tools and other software for graphic design, print and publishing professionals. Markzware’s MarkzTools2 is a standalone application that can convert InDesign CC and higher files to IDML files readable by InDesign CS6 and CS5.

You can convert InDesign Creative Cloud documents into an IDML file readable by CS5-CS6, with the simple-to-use MarkzTools2 app, without relying on the Cloud! To get more details, watch this video:

Some MarkzTools Bundle Benefits include:
• saves money on costs required by manual and other file conversion methods.
• enables you to open the new IDML in InDesign.
• is easy to use. (Just drag and drop on MarkzTools2’s main window or find and select via the File>Convert menu.)
• lets you choose or create the folder in which MarkzTools2 creates the IDML.
• is very fast. (It takes less time than for InDesign to send your document to a server and return an IDML.)

With MarkzTools2, you just run your lower version of InDesign and pull in the IDML. Unless you would rather settle for buying, installing and running a licensed, higher version of InDesign and endure the required steps and time to create an IDML via that method…

This ingenuous tool makes you completely independent from maintaining several versions of InDesign for different customers.
