Print Production Professionals Use
Quark and InDesign
From sales of Q2ID v5.5, the Quark to InDesign plugin for CS5.5, CS5 and CS4, it’s clear there are plenty of QuarkXPress users. Responses to this thread on the members-only LinkedIn Group, Print Production Professionals, have been numerous. Quark may have catching up to do, but with new management, ownership, and QuarkXPress 9, they have a shot at it.

use of Quark, publishing software
Yes, many are going Quark to InDesign. The Adobe InDesign CS5.5 plugin, Q2ID, makes Quark to InDesign data conversion a breeze. Here is a comment from a Q2ID user on this same LinkedIn Group Discussion on print production:
…I have received Quark files … over the … years, and I use the Markzware Q2ID plug-in to convert them to InDesign. No client has ever complained about that.

Markzware has many printing solutions, including for preflight, packaging and data conversion. There is no need to make a complete switch from QuarkXPress to Adobe InDesign. You can use both! With Q2ID, QuarkXPress 9 and the new App Studio, you can get your layouts onto an Apple iPad. So, perhaps that is another reason to check out Quark!
