IDMarkz Your Choice for Editing There is No Equal!

The applications Markzware provides designers of all levels are amazing time savers. When it comes to taking digital files and making them usable in older versions, or taking a file to your program of choice for editing there is no equal.

Excellent Customer Care

While working on an InDesign document, the file started acting crazy and I could not get it to work properly. I contacted Markzware to see if they could help, and they bent over backward to accommodate my needs. I highly recommend IDMarkz!

I've got my InDesign files back!!!!

Just discovered new magic in the form of IDMarkz. Now I can open, convert and use dozens of old InDesign files I didn't convert when I choose to not pay a monthly subscription/rent/ransom to Adobe and switched to the powerful Affinity suite of Publisher/Designer/Photo—highly, highly recommended, reasonably-priced, unexpectedly capable graphics tools for professionals. Bravo IDMarkz!

Wonderful tool, does everything I needed 🙂 Easy to download and easy to use. Thank you so much, this will make my life so much easier!

Markzware ROCKS!!!!
I'm obviously not the only one who is sick of being forced to work around Adobe's constant attempts to screw more cash out of users who have supported their products for DECADES already. Well, I would prefer to give my money and support to third-party software developers like Markzware, who are actually committed to providing products that HELP their customers. Their products are excellent, and the support is absolutely fantastic too.
Love it!

Works Great!!

I recently purchased IDMARKZ because I am running an older Mac and found out I can no longer upgrade to the most recent versions of Adobe Cloud products without replacing my perfectly good iMac. I have started getting files in the higher version of InDesign, and I hated to have to go back to the customer to ask them to save it back a version if they didn't include an .idml file when they packaged it. It's a great product and I wish I had gotten it sooner!

Started using IDMarkz a few years ago. Best purchase made. Well worth it. Converts files to various Applications. Quark files to InDesign in seconds.

I purchased IDMarkz to help in my transition process from ID to Affinity Publisher. When I first used the package I noticed some serious bugs, so I reported it to their tech support who then corrected the initial issues and released two or three updates in the process. I've been very impressed with the package and support I've received thus far.

Great work assistant

Been using Markware products for many, many years and as a foreign language typesetter working in 85 languages your products have been of invaluable assistance in getting projects completed.

I have been using this for years. We do not get many Cloud versions here, but this always opens them up. Markz has kept us from needing to upgrade to the cloud version of Adobe.
