“I was surprised at how easy it was to convert my QuarkXPress documents to InDesign,” Nancy Fox, editor for Gem Guides Book Company expressed about Markzware’s data conversion solution, Q2ID. Fox continues, “It is easy to install, easy to use and has saved me countless amounts of time having to export text from Quark to InDesign.”
Fox is in charge of laying out books for publishing, plus creating ads for magazines, as well as promotional flyers and postcards for customers of a publisher and distributor of books in the western U.S. that focuses on rocks, minerals, crystal healing, jewelry crafts, local history, gold prospecting, etc. “I use InDesign for creating the digital files for the books we publish, and for creating ads, promotional flyers and postcards. When I started at Gem Guides Book Company, it was in the final stages of transitioning from PageMaker to QuarkXPress. However, about three years ago, after flirting with using InDesign for the previous year, I decided to transition to InDesign because of the text controls.”

Fox explains why InDesign plays such a pivotal role with the amount of time she spends creating and editing these guide books. “It is the number one design program that I use. Unless, I am pulled off to do administrative duties, I use InDesign every day. It is used as I am creating a new book file, or editing a previous title for revision. I have to create or revise our ads on a quarterly basis, and create promotional flyers at least 3 or 4 times a year. I also use it when the sales manager asks me to create something to be emailed to prospective customers. The ease of creating a professional looking PDF file makes InDesign easy to use.”
