Seat Count is the number of systems a single License can be installed on. You may wish to purchase a 5 seat count, quantity 1, to install on 5 machines using a single License.
Quantity is the number of individual Licenses to purchase. You may wish to purchase 5 individual Licenses each to be installed on 1 system.
Linked text boxes will be recreated in the new document. Differences between the QuarkXPress and InDesign text layout engines will likely cause the text to split between the linked boxes differently.
“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…”

Have used previous versions with great success. I am now using the latest version with CC2020. It works perfectly with virtually everything. I am producing the second edition of a book and converting the chapters from Quark (c 2005) and the only thing it doesn’t pick up is the drop cap at the beginning of each chapter.
To make this a 5* review, I do think that Markzware could allow a single licence to be installed on a desktop and laptop for the same user, as is the industry standard.
Used with InDesign CC 2020 - Worked like a charm! Very little paragraph reformatting. Sometimes the artwork would resize slightly when the artwork was rekindled to the original .AI files. This was a HUGE timesaver!
Nagy segítség a Quark dokumentumok konvertálására. A leírtaknak megfelelően működik a program, de az InDesign CC 2018-hoz letöltött Q2ID programban is benne vannak azok a hibák, amik a régbbi verziókban is megvoltak. Pl.: a konvertált fájlokban mindegyik szövegdoboz kap egy külső és belső eltartás értéket.
Ezeket manuálisan kell javítani.
Ettől függetlenül jól működik, ajánlom mindenkinek!

Great help for converting Quark documents. The program works as described, but the Q2ID program downloaded for InDesign CC 2018 also contains bugs that were found in earlier versions. For example, in converted files, each textbox gets an external and an internal hold value.
These must be repaired manually.
It works well anyway, I recommend it to everyone!
Jag är jätte nöjd. Har QuarkXpress 2016 och öppnar dessa dokument i Q2ID och det går mycket bra. Det är typsnitten som man får leta reda på i vissa fall.

I am really pleased. Have QuarkXpress 2016 and open these documents in Q2ID and it is going very well. It's the fonts that you have to find in some cases.
What can I say? It works!
I purchased the Q2ID InDesign CC2020 (V15.X) with QXP 2019 (QXP V15.X).
Only used the product for one week but Q2ID could be a great time saver for myself as I may have hundreds of Quark documents to convert to InDesign.
So far my only problem is: when I convert Quark 2019 documents I get a bad format message and the conversion is only partially completed to InDesign. I have tried downsaving my Quark 2109 document to Quark 2018 and then convert using Q2ID.
I will let you know how I progress over the following months.
For the last few years we struggled with some old Quark Files we used for an important project. Q2ID did an excellent job: 1 hour's work and the struggle was over. Highly recommended, works really great, thanks for this great piece of software.
This program saved our life! After a major crash we are able to use everyone of our Quark files from the cloud! It was so easy!
Surprise, surprises; something that really lives up to the reviews I read before purchasing. Actually even better because even very old quark files come up in ID without using the "get old version program" from quark. Yes, there is some fix-up to do, but nothing unexpected.
Very impressive, recommended 100%, yes! it works
