Open InDesign Files as IDML (InDesign Markup Language) via MarkzTools2

Open InDesign files as IDML (InDesign Markup Language), via the MarkzTools2 application by Markzware:

If you opened an IDML file in Adobe InDesign, you may have noticed the document was called “Untitled”. If you are a print, publishing or graphic arts professional, you may handle numerous documents. So, it may be challenging to remember the original name of a particular InDesign file. A fast-acting application from Markzware could be handy in this situation.

Markzware develops conversion software to convert InDesign files and provides many other solutions, for desktop publishing applications users. Markzware’s MarkzTools2 is a stand-alone application that can create an IDML without requiring the Adobe InDesign program or Creative Cloud.

How do you convert InDesign to IDML? Check out this MarkzTools2 demonstration video, to see:

Markzware’s MarkzTools2 full-version app converts Adobe InDesign version documents into an IDML, a format which can be read by InDesign CS4 and newer InDesign versions.

To convert an InDesign file to IDML, using MarkzTools2, either:
• drag the document icon to the main window in MarkzTools2, or
• find and choose a document, via the File -> Convert menu. Upon completion of the file conversion, the IDML file will be added to the File -> Recent menu.

InDesign CS5 and InDesign CS6 users may have difficulty trying to get an IDML from a higher version via the server route. MarkzTools2 can help InDesign users to create an IDML from an InDesign document, including newer version INDD documents.

There are many applications that can import or edit IDML files. There is often a need to work with an InDesign document in one of these other applications. If you have an InDesign document but do not have access to the InDesign application itself, you might think that you are out of luck, but you aren’t. With [MarkzTools2], you can now convert your InDesign document into a standard IDML file readable by the many applications which support IDML.
