Once you install MarkzTools2, you’ll want to know how to start it up and use it for your first InDesign file to IDML file conversion. Markzware offers several Adobe InDesign-compatible products and this application can help you to convert InDesign files (INDD documents) to InDesign Markup Language files (IDML documents).

To convert your first Adobe InDesign file (INDD document) to an earlier version or to InDesign Markup Language (IDML), launch MarkzTools2. You can do this, by double-clicking on the MarkzTools2 Application icon. Your computer screen will display the main MarkzTools2 window.

Drag & Drop INDD to IDML File Conversion

Drag the InDesign files that you want to convert to IDML and drop them onto the MarkzTools2 window. The IDML files will be created, by default, in the same folder as that of the original INDD document. The stand-alone MarkzTools2 application does not require users to install the Adobe InDesign program, to be able to convert InDesign files to IDML.
