How Packaging Designers Can Convert QuarkXPress File to InDesign: Q2ID

Markzware shows how Packaging Designers can convert QuarkXPress file to InDesign file, via the Q2ID bundle of InDesign plugins:

Packaging producers face many challenges, as noted by Gardner Denver, a leading packaging business (Source). Among the challenges for graphic designers in the packaging industry is the need to get content into an appropriate file format. Conversion software can help to open QuarkXPress (QXP) files in the Adobe InDesign (INDD) format.

Markzware products offer features that add impressive value for QuarkXPress, InDesign, and other graphic software users for print and publishing. Markzware’s Q2ID bundle of conversion tools provide a document conversion solution that helps users to open QuarkXPress files within InDesign files.

Design workflows can benefit from using InDesign plugins to transfer QXP document content to an INDD document (InDesign CS5 through CC 2018). See how, by watching this Q2ID demonstration video:

Markzware’s Q2ID bundle of InDesign plugins can batch convert multiple QuarkXPress files, with fonts, colors, and other details, into Adobe InDesign for Creative Suite 5, 5.5 & 6, as well as for Creative Cloud (CC-CC 2018).

How to Convert Packaging Layouts from QuarkXPress to InDesign, via Markzware Q2ID:
• Click “Markzware” in the InDesign Menu Bar and select “Convert QuarkXPress® Document…” from the Q2ID fly-out menu.
• Select the QuarkXPress packaging design file that you want to convert and click Open. You will see a conversion progress bar. The QuarkXPress file will appear rebuilt in InDesign.
• Save, close and reopen the new InDesign file.
• Remap any missing fonts or images via the InDesign dialog.
• Re-save the new InDesign document.

With InDesign plugins, you can expand your graphic design capabilities for a range of packaging purposes. Markzware’s Q2ID plugins enable you to use QuarkXPress content in InDesign, to help you to reach business goals.

A Lifesaver
We have had this Q2ID plugin since it first came out and it’s a must-have in our department. We use it almost every day to convert old Quark files from our archives … Over the years, the conversion process has become increasingly more accurate. It’s far better than having to rebuild a file from scratch! Tech support is WONDERFUL also! Thank you!

• saves the costs of recreating QXP documents.
• saves time by converting Quark to InDesign via software, rather than via manual file conversion.
