Markzware PDF2DTP: “our secret weapon”

SANTA ANA, California, March 25, 2019 — Markzware, leading innovator of desktop publishing and data conversion tools, has had the privilege to interview the founder of the The Simon Group, a marketing agency north of Boston, Massachusetts. In a video testimonial, Mr. David D’Apice shares his experience in using Markzware’s PDF to InDesign file converter, PDF2DTP.

In this lively testimonial, Mr. D’Apice discusses making “the great migration” from QuarkXPress to Adobe InDesign and also coins the term “software island,” on which the Markzware product line has helped graphic designers avoid becoming stuck. A key part of the conversion and migration from QuarkXPress to InDesign, was Markzware’s Q2ID. It was invaluable in helping them to keep their customer’s graphic files up-to-date and modern, instead of legacy files. The Simon Group also used FlightCheck as a quality assurance tool. 

Currently, the Simon Group is using multiple copies of Markzware PDF2DTP, PDF to InDesign software. PDF2DTP is the professional’s choice for getting multi-page PDF files into InDesign. Mr. D’Apice shares valuable, real-life details about their use of  Markzware’s PDF to InDesign plugin. For instance, at one stage if asked they would recommend PDF2DTP for others, David said, “It really is our secret weapon.”

The ability to get content from sales PDFs, as he coined them, into a design format like InDesign, in seconds, is extremely valuable and useful. In marketing, many times the source files are lost and all you have is the PDF. Markzware’s PDF2DTP will convert those into InDesign files, with all images, colors, fonts, live text, and more.

“It was really fun to interview David D’Apice. It was like a trip down DTP memory lane. So much has changed in desktop publishing, yet the principals remain the same. Sounds like The Simon Group understands that,” according to David Dilling, Markzware Europe, who conducted the video testimonial.
