Markzware Releases Its Popular Plugin Q2ID v2 QuarkXPress 7 To Adobe InDesign

RIJSWIJK, The Netherlands – 08 November 2006 – Markzware, the leading developer of preflighting, data extraction and conversion software is pleased to announce the immediate release to the popular update of Q2ID v2 (QuarkXPress to Adobe InDesign). This is an Adobe InDesign plugin and requires an installed and supported version of Adobe InDesign v3 (CS) or v4 (CS2) prior to installing Q2ID.

This important upgrade enables QuarkXPress files from version 3.3 to 7.0 to be converted for use with InDesign CS or CS2. Q2ID v2 is a one-stop solution that simply imports the majority of the original QuarkXPress features and settings intact into an InDesign file. “Q2ID v2 is a noticeable time-saver that reduces the daunting process of re-keyboarding and formatting data. Creating a data conversion tool is technically very difficult and whenever data is converted, we suggest that the user proof their work before printing,” said Patrick Marchese, president of Markzware.

“Q2ID (v2) is a big time saver. I’ve helped hundreds of companies make the Quark to InDesign transition. Without Q2ID, it was a matter of back-saving to Quark 4 and often the client didn’t have all the versions, particularly Quark 5. Now, even Quark 7 files can be converted directly. I love it!” Clint Funk, Funk & Associates, print production workflow consultant,

Some of the items that Q2ID will convert into InDesign include: fonts and style sheets, linked images and graphics, color blends, linked and anchored text boxes, CMYK specifications, Pantone selections and other color models and page positioning.

Markzware’s Q2ID is available from resellers around Europe, The Middle East, India and Africa or at the Markzware Products page at . The MSRP is €199 or £139 and the upgrade costs €99 or £79 for any current users of Q2ID v1.x. For more information, please visit
