Production software company Markzware released an upgraded version of its Pub2ID plug-in for CS3 and CS4, which enables users to convert native-application Microsoft Publisher files to Adobe InDesign files while preserving content, styles and formatting.
The plug-in, according to Markzware, translates the details of the content within a Publisher document and re-creates it within InDesign, converting page size, positioning, fonts and styles, text attributes, layers, and linked text boxes, as well as automatically extracts images embedded in the Publisher file.
Magazine publishing clients include the National Publishers Group and Rockwall, Texas-based Living magazine. According to AlphaGraphics lead graphic designer Bruce Harris, using the updated plug-in saves him between 15 minutes to an hour. “I especially like how it exports the images to a separate folder automatically.”
The upgrade costs $99, Markzware said. Source
