Some people might ask

What Is Converted

Q2ID offers a one-click, complete conversion from QuarkXPress layouts to InDesign. Here are some of the main elements that are converted.

Page Positioning

The conversion process will maintain each element’s page position and z-index (depth order).

Layers

Layers created in QuarkXPress will be recreated in InDesign.

Linked Text Boxes

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.

Runarounds

Although there are differences in the runaround settings between QuarkXPress and InDesign, you will find that the automatic conversion process is highly accurate.

Style Sheets

Both Paragraph and Character Style Sheets are maintained through the conversion process. Years of our team perfecting the conversion process ensures that all style data is copied over.

Images

Placed image data is retained. If images are missing they can easily be replaced.

Don't Take Our Word for It

“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!”

“I have converted over 50 projects — as small at a letterhead and as large as a 64 page 4/c color magazine — it worked great!!! In the end, it saved me weeks worth of time. Buy it, use it, love it… you will not regret it.”

“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’m on my second year of using Q2ID, and it’s been a lifesaver. The first publication I converted more than paid for the year’s fee. Thank you for inventing something that actually works and is easy to use.”

Wow! Does the job painlessly!

Our design studio has been using both Quark and InDesign for years. Recently, many clients have requested we provide project files in InDesign exclusively. In those cases, we've had to repurpose the original Quark files. This process would be tedious and mind-numbing to have to rebuild the files from scratch. Q2ID is the solution to that problem. The conversions take but a few moments and turn out native InDesign files, ready to go. The number of hours this one plugin saves us is immeasurable! Highly recommended.

WOW

I stopped upgrading Quark years ago when my clients all started using InDesign. But I recently had a broker bring me a large catalog that he'd really like me to do the next major revision. It was in the latest version of Quark (I didn't know anyone still used Quark!). I didn't have the time to re-create the entire thing and even considered shelling out the $850 to purchase Quark, just for this job. But then I'd also have to learn how to use it. Then I came across Q2ID and at 1/4 the price of Quark I thought it was at least worth a try. All I can say is WOW!!! I converted the file to InDesign and I can't even tell it wasn't originally created in InDesign. This product is going to allow me to do this job efficiently in a program I already use daily. THANK YOU for making such a useful product.

WHY DID I WAIT!

I completely abandoned Quark over two years ago after using it for over 30 years and I have battled this purchase decision for two full years, always opting to just re-create. I made the decision to make the purchase of Q2ID VERY reluctantly (with one finger on the "I want my money back" button. I opened a 72 page directory that I had created in Quark and BOOM; there it was in InDesign. Very, VERY minor adjustments need to be made and I'm replacing most of it anyway. This saved me WEEKS! Don't be a fool like me. Purchase it now!!!!

Impeccable pour gagner du temps

Module parfait pour compenser les derniers retardataires qui travaillent encore sous xpress.... Rapide, efficace pour gagner un temps précieux.

Perfect module to compensate the latest latecomers who still work under xpress .... Fast, effective to save valuable time.

Q2ID Worked great!

I've only used the Q2ID plugin for converting 2 quark files, but it worked exactly as advertised. Download, install and registration was easy, using the plugin was extremely easy and quick. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was I've only used it one time on 2 files. We'll see if it gets a 5th star if I need to use it more in the future.

Do I need to have QuarkXPress installed to use Q2ID?

Q2ID is an InDesign plugin. You do NOT need to have access to QuarkXPress. You will need to have Adobe InDesign installed though.
