SANTA ANA, California – July 16, 2009 – Markzware, leading software developer and inventor of preflight, released an upgrade to its popular conversion software, Pub2ID v2.10, today. Pub2ID (Publisher to InDesign) is an InDesign plugin to convert Microsoft Publisher to Adobe InDesign. It provides quick, easy and affordable data conversion from Publisher to Adobe InDesign. Documents convert from PUB to INDD, while preserving content, styles and formatting.
The Adobe InDesign user clicks “File” in the toolbar, then “Open,” and selects the Microsoft Publisher file for conversion. This two-step process initiates the file conversion and can open Publisher in Adobe InDesign. Pub2ID saves graphic artists, printing and publishing professionals countless hours that would otherwise be spent recreating the entire document.
This Pub2ID update provides the following enhancements:
• Grouped items in Publisher remain grouped in InDesign
• Text wrap around an image works more consistently
• Image scaling issues are resolved preserving the original scaling in InDesign
• Pantone names are preserved as are custom RGB and CMYK values and tint values
Pub2ID can convert Publisher versions 2002 through 2007 and is available for Macintosh or Windows. No more re-creating documents from scratch; Pub2ID gives you a big head-start.
