Markzware’s Q2ID can help you to convert QuarkXPress catalogs, templates, book files, and other QXP documents to Adobe InDesign. Transfer the content, along with the layout details, to several versions of InDesign, using the Q2ID bundle of InDesign plugins.

How to Convert QuarkXPress Layouts to Adobe InDesign CS5-CC 2018 via Q2ID:
• Click “Markzware” in the menu bar in an InDesign CS5-CC 2018 version and select “Convert QuarkXPress® Document…” from the Q2ID fly-out menu.
• Select the QuarkXPress file to convert and click Open. You will see a conversion progress bar. The QuarkXPress file will appear rebuilt in InDesign.

An IDC study found that a “staggering 43% of office-workers are using disconnected systems in everyday workflows. This means copying, pasting, retyping, and rekeying information that has already been created.” (Source: https://blogs.adobe.com/documentcloud/adobe-document-cloud-research/) You can convert QuarkXPress files to InDesign, using Q2ID, without manually having to reconstruct the content.

Worth Every Penny
When I was forced to move from Quark to In Design I was panic stricken as to how I was going to find the time to rebuild files required for my ongoing clients in the new program. Luckily I found the link for Markzware & Q2ID. What a lifesaver. It installs in a snap and converts files with ease. I only need to update a few fonts & effects and then it’s good to go. This has saved me from countless hours of work & stress. Thank you!
