How to Convert QuarkXPress 2017 to InDesign CC: Q2ID InDesign Plugins

Q2ID is document conversion software by Markzware that can open QuarkXPress 2017 page layout details, including fonts, colors, images and more, within InDesign CC files.

“I have become so used to Q2ID and its seamless integration with InDesign’s “Open…” dialog, I honestly forgot that opening Quark files in InDesign isn’t a native feature of InDesign. We no longer design in Quark and we use InDesign almost exclusively, but many of our legacy files are in Quark, so I do these conversions on an almost daily basis. Yes, some of the more complex files require tweaking, but almost all of the more simple files such as stationery layouts convert exactly with no editing necessary. That I don’t even think of the conversion as being done by a plug-in is a testimony of just how good Q2ID is.”
– Roy Behymer, IPC Graphics

How to Convert QuarkXPress 2017 to InDesign CC via Q2ID InDesign Plugins:
• Click “Markzware” in the InDesign Menu Bar and select “Convert QuarkXPress® Document…” from the Q2ID fly-out menu.
• Select the QuarkXPress 2017 file 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 CC file.
• Remap any missing fonts or images via the InDesign dialog.
• Re-save the new InDesign CC document.
