Graphic design studios may devote considerable time to graphic design for print production, which could mean an extensive list of jobs, including anything from advertising to vehicle graphics. Graphic arts businesses often evolve to keep up with the market and technology, including changes in graphic software.
Adobe InDesign CC (Creative Cloud) and QuarkXPress are both types of graphic software. Creative professionals may receive a QuarkXPress file, while an InDesign file is the document type required. Data conversion software can help with this task.
Graphic designers who want to transfer content from QuarkXPress to Adobe InDesign can use Q2ID, an InDesign CC plugin from Markzware that can convert data from QuarkXPress to InDesign. Here is a video that shows how to convert QuarkXPress to InDesign CC with InDesign plugin, Q2ID:

So, how do you handle files (or legacy files) that need to be reused? How do you move content from QuarkXPress native files submitted by clients over to InDesign CC? Here are the steps that show how simple it is to convert QuarkXPress to InDesign CC, by using an InDesign plugin that re-creates QuarkXPress files within Adobe InDesign, without the need to rebuild the layout, element by element:
1. Click “Markzware” in the InDesign Menu Bar and select “Convert QuarkXPress® Document…”
from the Markzware Q2ID fly-out menu.
2. Select the QuarkXPress file to convert and click Open. (You will see a conversion progress bar. The QuarkXPress file will appear rebuilt in InDesign.)
3. Save, close and reopen the new InDesign file.
4. Remap any missing fonts or images via the InDesign dialog.
5. Re-save the new InDesign document.
