How to Open QuarkXPress 2015 in Adobe InDesign CC 2017 via Q2ID:
• Click “Markzware” in InDesign CC 2017’s Menu Bar and select “Convert QuarkXPress® Document…” from the Q2ID fly-out menu.

• Save, close and reopen the new INDD document.
• Remap any missing fonts or images via the InDesign dialog.
• Re-save the new INDD document.

Q2ID‘s Benefits:
• QuarkXPress document content extraction, which allows you to work with text, images and more, within InDesign
• QXP file recovery, without the original application and without re-creating the document from scratch
• Fast access to QuarkXPress details, to which you can add or make changes, by using InDesign features

You can achieve quality file conversion, through a clean interface. Q2ID’s simple menu selections help you to customize and complete quick conversions.
