Markzware’s Q2ID conversion software provides seamless document conversion with easy access to QXP content within a new INDD document. Get QuarkXPress fonts, colors, images, and more into a version of Adobe InDesign, including InDesign CC 2018, with a click!

How to Convert QuarkXPress to InDesign CC 2018 with Markzware Q2ID:
• Click “Markzware” in the InDesign CC 2018 Menu Bar 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.
• Save, close and reopen the new InDesign CC 2018 file.
• Remap any missing fonts or images via the InDesign dialog.
• Re-save the new InDesign document.

The implementation of InDesign plugins for file conversion can bring big benefits to the DTP workflow. InDesign-based Q2ID plugins allow InDesign document producers to accept QuarkXPress files without having to worry about inconsistent file conversion results.

While my need for converting Quark documents becomes less with each passing year–I still need to convert them. My only options are to re-create the entire document from scratch or use the Markzware plug-in to convert the file.
The time savings of the plug-in can pay for itself in one job (depending on the complexity of the files). A well-built Quark document easily converts to a well-built InDesign document. I wouldn’t want to work without having this plug-in in my “toolbox”
