How To Install PDFMarkz Scripts

PDFMarkz ships with scripts that install in InDesign, allowing you to convert PDF files to InDesign, right from within InDesign.

Before installing the PDF scripts, Launch and observe the normal menu bar, specifically the “File” menu, within InDesign.

Quit InDesign and install the PDFMarkz scripts.

Launch PDFMarkz and notice the “Scripts Installer” under the “Tools” menu.

Click on the “Scripts Installer” window and view status of the installed scripts for the various versions of InDesign that may be loaded on your machine.

Click on “Install for InDesign 2022”.

Input your username and password.

After installing the script for InDesign 2022, notice the status changes from “Install” to “Installed”.

Now, launch InDesign 2022, to see what the scripts do.

Notice the new menu item on the InDesign toolbar called, “Markzware”.

Under the “Markzware” menu, you’ll see, “Convert PDF Document”.

Similarly under the “File” menu, there’s a new item named, “Open PDF File”.

Both of these menu items do the same thing, which is to invoke PDFMarkz that converts and, then, opens PDF to IDML, directly within InDesign, for editing.

These scripts, along with PDFMarkz, act as a replacement for our former PDF2DTP InDesign plug-ins.

To use the PDFMarkz scripts, select one of the two scripts now installed.

Open the PDF that you want to work on and let PDFMarkz convert it for you. Then, you’re ready to go!

Now, you will have 100% editable text from the PDF file you selected.

Both the text and images boxes are moveable, and the text will reflow.
