“When coming up with an assessment for any piece of software, I have to consider its place in the world as well as the job that it does. From the point of view of its place in the world, the simple truth is that I have never come across another application or plugin that can convert a PDF file to either InDesign or Quark XPress. I’ve written articles on how to achieve this by other means, but this plugin renders them moot. From that point of view, PDF2DTP is groundbreaking.”
