Data Conversion for QuarkXPress to InDesign

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.

Markzware Q2ID can convert QuarkXPress to InDesign, including such QXP items as:

  • anchored boxes
  • blends
  • color models
  • fonts and styles
  • images
  • layers
  • linked text boxes
  • page positioning
  • pantone colors
  • runarounds
  • text attributes
  • tables


  • 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 ID’s Preferences.
  • Pink Box behind Text
    Pink highlighted text indicates substituted fonts. If you have a pink box behind some text after file 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 QXP 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 document conversion, please make sure that you have the latest version of Q2ID. If you are still having problems, please fill out a Trouble Ticket and make sure to send us the problematic file(s) so we may inspect them.
