Q2ID is an InDesign plugin that can convert your content from one standard layout format (QuarkXPress) to another (Adobe InDesign). The Q2ID for InDesign CS5.5 plugin imports QXP pictures, text, and more into an INDD file.

Q2ID can be a huge help to creative professionals, by enabling:
• File Recovery: Recover a QXP file in InDesign, without the original design application. Q2ID saves time, money and labor, since the QuarkXPress document does not have to be re-created.
• QXP Editing: Get fast access to a QXP document for editing within an INDD document. Q2ID opens the QuarkXPress file in InDesign, allowing you to modify the QXP file.
• Content Extraction: Extract content from a QuarkXPress document. Q2ID allows you to extract text, images and more from a QXP file, plus be able to work with that content in InDesign.
