Adobe InDesign Plugin to Convert Quark Files to InDesign Files – Q2ID
Markzware Q2ID is an Adobe InDesign plugin that can convert Quark files to InDesign files
Install Q2ID for Mac or Windows
Q2ID can even convert a QuarkXPress Windows file into an Adobe InDesign Mac file. The Adobe InDesign file format is platform independent, so both Mac and Windows InDesign files can be opened by both the Mac and Windows versions of InDesign. To install Q2ID into Adobe InDesign for Mac or Windows, please see the Q2ID Manual (Quark to InDesign Manual). You will need your Q2ID License ID number to activate Q2ID.
- Yellow Box behind Text
Yellow highlighted text indicates substituted Glyphs. If you have a yellow box behind some text after data conversion, you can turn off the highlighting by unchecking “highlight substituted Glyphs” in the Composition section of Adobe InDesign’s Preferences.
- Pink Box behind Text
Pink highlighted text indicates substituted fonts. If you have a pink box behind some text after data conversion, you can turn off the highlighting by unchecking highlight “substituted fonts” in the Composition section of InDesign’s Preferences. This is usually caused when the person creating the original Quark document used a style on a font without an actual font being present, such as a false bold.
- Adobe InDesign Crash during Data Conversion
If you encounter an Adobe InDesign crash during data conversion, please make sure that you have the latest version of Q2ID.
