Markzware Announces the Upgrade of Pub2ID, a CS5 Plugin for Adobe
Microsoft Publisher to Adobe InDesign with CS5 Support

SANTA ANA, California, May 19, 2010 — Markzware, the leading developer and inventor of preflighting and conversion software today announced an upgrade to its popular data conversion solution. Microsoft Publisher to Adobe InDesign plugin for both Macintosh and Windows, Pub2ID v3, adds full support for the Adobe CS5 Creative 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,” said Michael Shaw, MaUsE president, editor, MaUsE DoubleClick.

Pub2ID (Publisher to InDesign) is an InDesign plugin for Adobe InDesign CS5. It provides a quick, easy and affordable method for you to migrate all your Microsoft Publisher content into new Adobe InDesign documents. The file conversion is enabled with a few clicks, using the Markzware > Pub2ID > Convert MS Publisher Document menu. No more re-creating documents from scratch; Pub2ID gives you a big head-start.

Pub2ID translates the intricate details of the content within the Microsoft Publisher document and instantly re-creates it in InDesign CS5. It can convert Publisher files while including items such as page size, positioning, color models, fonts and styles, text attributes and tables, layers, word wrap, 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 suggest that all converted documents are proofed before output.

System Requirements:

    Intel based Mac, 2 GB RAM, 1280 x 800 screen resolution, Mac OS v10.5 to v10.6x
    Windows XP, Vista (32) or Win7 (32), Pentium III or higher, 2 GB RAM, 1280 x 800 screen resolution.

Pricing and Availability:
The software upgrade of Pub2ID v3 is available immediately. You can upgrade to PUB2ID v3 from versions 1 and 2 for $99.00.  You can purchase and download it from the Pub2ID page. The full version is available for $199.00.
