Not on Adobe Creative Cloud, but Get InDesign CC Files? Use MarkzTools

If you’re not on Adobe Creative Cloud, but still get InDesign CC files, you can convert InDesign CC files to CS5-CS6 via Markzware‘s MarkzTools for InDesign plugins:

Many Adobe InDesign users choose to create documents in CS5, CS5.5 or CS6 (Creative Suite versions), without transitioning to Adobe’s Creative Cloud. Yet, it is possible for InDesign CS5 through InDesign CS6 users to access InDesign CC files.

Markzware provides Mac platform solutions and more, to support document production in Adobe InDesign and other workflows for print, publishing and graphic arts. Markzware’s MarkzTools for InDesign plugins are available in a bundle that can open CC and newer InDesign version files in InDesign CS5 through CS6.

Open higher InDesign versions in lower versions of InDesign! See how, in this video demonstration of MarkzTools for InDesign:

Not on Adobe Creative Cloud, but Get InDesign CC Files? Use MarkzTools

Markzware’s MarkzTools for InDesign plugins enable users to open later Adobe InDesign versions in earlier InDesign versions. For example, an InDesign CS5 user could open InDesign CS5.5 through CC 2017 file versions within CS5.

It’s simple to use MarkzTools for InDesign. Just go to the MarkzTools menu, select “Convert InDesign Document”, and select the INDD document that you want to convert.

InDesign users could experience a problem when they receive a document from a CC user. MarkzTools for InDesign allows you to convert your customers’ InDesign Creative Cloud version files directly to CS6, CS5.5 or CS5, without having to request an IDML file.

“… an InDesign CS5 user of MarkzTools for InDesign can open an InDesign CC (Creative Cloud) or CC 2014 document.”
– Vision Asia Magazine, Issue 10, page 27

Advantages of using MarkzTools
• provides easy and accurate data conversion for InDesign CS5-CS6 users who handle newer version INDD documents.
• gives InDesign CS5-CS6 users fast InDesign CC version access, for editing within an earlier INDD document version, without a Creative Cloud subscription.
• saves time, since the later version InDesign document does not have to be rebuilt from scratch.
