Markzware Announces Pub2ID Upgrade v3
Publisher to Adobe InDesign Plugin with CS5 Support

SANTA ANA, California, September 14, 2010 – Markzware, the leading developer and inventor of patented preflighting technology and content conversion today announced an upgrade to Pub2ID, its popular conversion solution to convert Microsoft Publisher to Adobe CS5 Suite for both Macintosh and Windows. The Pub2ID v3 Publisher converter / InDesign CS5 plugin to open Publisher adds full support for Adobe CS5 Suite.

“With Pub2ID, it is possible to bring all of your old MS Publisher documents into the Twenty-first century and open them magically and painlessly in Adobe InDesign CS5,” said Michael Shaw, MaUsE president, editor, MaUsE DoubleClick. Pub2ID (Publisher to InDesign) is a Publisher converter / plug-in for Adobe InDesign CS5 or CS4. This InDesign plugin provides a quick, easy and affordable method for you to convert Microsoft Publisher content into new Adobe InDesign CS5 documents. The file conversion is enabled by clicking “Convert MS Publisher Document” in the Markzware > Pub2ID menu. No more re-creating documents from scratch; Pub2ID gives you a big head-start.

Pub2ID, the Publisher converter, translates many details of the content within Microsoft Publisher documents and quickly re-creates the document in Adobe CS5 Suite or CS4. This Adobe CS5 plug in can convert Publisher files including items such as page size, positioning, color correction, fonts and styles, text attributes and tables, text formatting effects, text wrap, layers, text flow, linked text boxes as well as automatic image extraction of all images embedded in the Publisher file. All Desktop Publishing (DTP) applications have their own, unique methods of text rendering and graphical representation. Therefore, text flow and certain graphical elements will not be 100%. Depending on the use of custom kerning, tracking, leading, graphic formatting and effects, etc., more or less rework may be required, but some rework will always be required. We recommend proofing all converted documents before output.
