The PDF to Adobe InDesign conversion process transfers all of the elements over from the PDF document into a new InDesign file. What you end up with is an editable InDesign document maintaining the original layout, content, and styling as in the original design.
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
• text attributes
• much more…
✓ Always have support for the latest file versions
✓ Predictable annual costs

when the client only has a PDF of an old directory they want to be recreated and you want to pull your hair out ... MY HAIR THANKS THE GODS of Markzware for saving me the hours of tedious work. What would have been an entire day of recon became minutes with this handy plug in. I really appreciate it... as does my hair! Bald never really looked good on me.
I have just converted a 5-page PDF document in a very short time and I have to say, I am very impressed.I didn’t have huge expectations as my document had a lot of shape vectors and different text formats - which I assumed wouldn’t convert well.But I actually needed to do very little adjusting after it converted.I´m assuming the better you layout your original document in InDesign (following styles etc.) the better it is.The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because I had to manually install after it failed to install directly from the download. And, it doesn't convert perfectly (but you won't find a product that will!)Great work and I think probably the best in the market!
With so many source programs creating PDFs, each with their own method and coding for their layouts, it's not surprising that some conversions are a bit awkward to work with. We purchased with the intent of converting PDFs from our website where real estate investors choose a design and add body copy of their own. There is always information that will be swapped out by us for data merge, both text and images. We were hoping for native InDesign files from the web programmers, since that is where our data merge software operates. PDF2DTP bridges the gap for us and allows us to easily add the bleeds that the PDFs don't have as well as swap out address information and photos during merge. Text boxes are often unthreaded, but without knowing how the web form is coded, I can't be sure where the fault lies. Even so, PDF2DTP saves us quite a bit of time and is far superior to opening the file in Illustrator and dealing with its conversion shortcomings and lackluster paragraph handling.
good product but hate subscriptions!!!!!!!
It converted the file but it was very disjointed. Text with many line breaks and some moved all around the place. Because I am not the maker of the Quark file I can not say how it was built so that may have had something to do with it. In the end it worked better than recreating because the file included 5 foreign languages that made it tough to even think about rebuilding from scratch. I was also dealing with a Quark 6 file and bringing it into INDD CC 2017.I am not sure I would pay for it again if this is how it works with all files but alas I have no other need for it.Easy to install and at the ready in INDD CC as its own drop down menu which is nice. Wish there was a trial version I could have used to test before laying out a few hundred but.. that is in the past now.
The conversion outcome depends largely on how the original file was created. Sometimes when outputting to PDF the text is chopped up like you have seen in your file. We have seen these types of files as well, but this is not a typical outcome. If you would like to send in your file we would love to take a look at it and see what improvements we might be able to make.
