PDF2DTP is a life saver

Due to financial disaster after a stroke I had to let my license lapse on this so it's been a while since I last used it, and boy has the Markzware guys been busy, they have made this product a must-have in my opinion! the conversions are blisteringly fast and incredibly good, it's clear that Markzware talks to designers, this plugin is awesomely good, I'm not easily impressed but this new version has knocked my socks off!On my list of essential software for designers!

Almost perfect, and way, way better than the alternative

I am working on a catalog project. The initial design and art production work was done in Asia and instead of using InDesign for this 40-page catalog, they used Illustrator. Don't ask me why, but I am assuming it is because many Chinese printers seem to prefer Illustrator. In any case, I am faced with converting an A4 sized catalog to 8.5"x11", converting all units to US standard and making many other changes to match the US model line up. PDF2DTP has been a god-send. It has allowed me to quickly convert each spread from Illustrator to InDesign. The converted files are all pretty good and I'm making progress. Some problems I've encountered: not all fonts copy, especially if there are fonts in the original doc that I don't have in my system. When vector illustrations are converted I have a long, long list of paths in my Links folder, vs. a collected .ai file, and images are not titled in the Links folder beyond "Image 2", Image 3" etc. But these are relatively minor issues. I'm very pleased with the performance of the software - and very relieved to have found such a solution to my daunting problem. Thanks!

PDF2DTP for InDesign Mac

It's a fantastic product. The results of the conversion are almost perfect. Fast and easy to access and use. However for the price it would of been good to have the same as the adobe license, automatically for two machines.

This extension for indesign works really well, it’s not perfection but close to it. The only negative point is the fact that we get only one license per computer regarding the price. Comparing to a full adobe CS subscription that automatically works on two machines maximum on a single licence and cost approx 800/900 USD a year

Very simple to use; there isn't a version for Win

A very good product, it really works with a "click"! Unluckily there isn't a version for Win (I've had to ask a friend to use her Mac) and th installer does't run automatically on old Macs. Support service is fast and precise.
