Markzware raises the file conversion software bar for printers, publishers and graphic artists all over the world. Markzware’s Q2ID bundle of document conversion tools can convert QuarkXPress 4-2017 files to InDesign CS5-CC 2018 files on macOS and Windows platforms.

Markzware’s Q2ID is often associated with QuarkXPress to InDesign (QXP to INDD) document conversion for desktop publishing (DTP). The InDesign plugins in the Q2ID bundle are a popular way to open QuarkXPress layout documents, with details, in an Adobe InDesign document.

To convert QuarkXPress to InDesign via Q2ID, click “Markzware” in the InDesign Menu Bar. Select “Convert QuarkXPress® Document…” from the Q2ID fly-out menu. Select the QuarkXPress file to convert. (You can do bulk conversion with Q2ID, by selecting multiple files for conversion.) Click Open, and Save the new InDesign file.

Q2ID makes it simple to convert a QuarkXPress magazine or catalog with fonts, graphics, and colors, to InDesign. Imagine easily creating InDesign newsletters, directories, etc., from QuarkXPress text, graphics, and other content, by using Q2ID.

“I have been using Markzware for years—starting with FlightCheck in the mid-90s—and I still have one designer client who just can’t make the switch to ID—Q2ID keeps her in business! I never have any problems converting her work to ID so that I can prepare them for publication or printers or whatever she needs. I’ve also used it with another client who has a lot of archived files: I recently opened a Quark layout for them from 1999, easy as pie.”
– Barry Rowell, long-time Q2ID user

Advantages of Using Q2ID:
• provides accurate data conversion and access to QXP content within a new INDD document, in minimal time.
• allows easy content migration from QuarkXPress to InDesign.
• recovers a QXP file in InDesign, without the original design application.
• reduces costs of rebuilding QXP legacy files.
• saves time, since you won’t need to spend hours re-creating the QuarkXPress document.
