“We have had this Q2ID plugin since it first came out and it’s a must-have in our department. We use it almost every day. Over the years, the conversion process has become increasingly more accurate. It’s far better than having to rebuild a file from scratch! Tech support is WONDERFUL also! Thank you!”
“LIFE SAVER…I updated all my software last year when I bought a new computer. I didn’t want to update Quark as I was fazing it out and only working in ID for layout. Markzware Q2ID saved me so much time in not having to redesign files and saved me money in not having to update QXP. Thank you so much for this amazing product! I rate it a million stars…”
I’ve enjoyed using Q2ID – it has saved a bunch of time for me with some tricky conversions of older Quark projects. And when a client calls with a need to access or modify a layout done some time back in Quark, I know I can meet their wishes without missing a step.
I believe I fall into the category of tried and true designers who hate to give up quark for Indesign.... and as such Markzware has been a Godsend to allow me to work as efficiently and creatively as I am used. And then convert to indesign for final production if a third party needs it! Some of my colleagues think I am crazy to continue to use Quark but I became the designer I am because and grew up on it so I don't want to live without it... Plus my clients love the speed and efficiency that I work... so Markzware and Quark are a critical set of tools for me! Worth every penny!
"It’s always at the most inconvenient time when clients throw a wrench into our schedules. I had finished an annual report and was heading into the next deadline when I received a call that the client needed the native files in InDesign vs Quark. While I have InDesign, I prefer to work in Quark and wasn’t about to recreate the behemoth. I don’t recall how I found Q2ID, but was absolutely thrilled at how my conundrum was solved with the click of a button! The tool is amazingly useful for us and solves the needs of our clients who want to take the master creative and repurpose it in-house."
This application has been a life saver for converting Quark to InDesign documents. Easy to use, too.
Had heard about this product, but it sounds too good to be true... Well, it's AMAZING! I had switched to ID a while ago and still had some clients with projects originally in QXD... I did not want to upgrade to the new QXD since my new Mac doesn't run the older version and I really prefer working in ID. Finally bit the bullet and bought Q2ID. So fast, saved me hours and hours of work if I was going to rebuild. THANK YOU for this phenomenal product!
