The PDF to Adobe InDesign conversion process re-creates or transfers, as best as possible, all of the elements over from the PDF document into a new InDesign file. What you end up with is an editable InDesign document mimicking the original layouts content, and styling.
No need to work with cumbersome PDF files or recreate the layout from scratch, let PDF2DTP do the heavy lifting for you. You can expect PDF2DTP to maintain virtually all items including:
• page positioning
• styles (re-created)
• text attributes
• much more…

I purchased this product specifically because I had a 60-page pdf booklet with tons of graphics that needed major edits. I have used other Markzware products in the past, so I had confidence this would work, and it did!!! I was able to convert the 60 pages from pdf to InDesign and make changes to EVERY page in only 4 hours. Even the linked graphics were set up correctly, and there were multiple graphics on each page! If I had tried to make those same changes using only Adobe Acrobat, I would have been much more limited (and frustrated) in what I could change, and it would have taken much longer. Markzware, you are a life saver!!!
A client wanted me to convert 24 existing brochures into interactive documents. I do this from InDesign but they sent me all Illustrator files. Scream!!
I saved the .ai files to .pdf and then converted them to InDesign with Markzware PDF2DTP. Saved tons of time AND created a new income stream!
I have been using this plug-in for years both personally and professionally. I can rely on the softwares' performance and accuracy when it comes to converting a PDF to application files. We recently had a 250 page art book, (over 1G in size!) with over 200 (huge) images that was created by a freelance designer in CANVA. Working for a publisher, we had to make edits for the author, and get the (did I mention PDF with no bleed) print ready! This software was a “file-saver!!!”. It literally saved us an un-imaginable amount of hours! Not only were we able to seamlessly convert, edit, and prep the pdf, but we can archive application files for future publications! Publication date Winter 2020. Thank you Markzware!
Worked perfect for a client program of 2 millions €
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!
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!
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
