IPC Graphics Recommends The plug-in for Adobe, Markzware’s Q2ID

Roy Behymer of IPC Graphics recommends plug-in for Adobe, Markzware‘s Q2ID. This InDesign plugin is data conversion software to convert QuarkXPress to Adobe InDesign:

I have used many Markzware products over the years: FlightCheck Designer; Pub2ID; Q2ID; MarkzTools; Pict Attributes XT; PM2Q. There’s a reason I keep coming back and why I’ve purchased and recommended so many of their products. They simply work, which helps to make my work more simple. Even as we’ve progressed from one [graphic design] program to another, dropping some along the way, Markzware’s products have always helped us, no matter which professional design program we use.
I have become so used to the plug-in for Adobe, Q2ID, and its seamless integration with InDesign‘s “Open…” dialog, I honestly forgot that [to open 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 for Adobe, which is a testimony of just how good Q2ID is.
