I’m on my second year of using Q2ID, and it’s been a lifesaver. There’s usually a bit of fine-tuning to be done after converting a document, but it’s minimal and probably can be attributed to my non-use of style sheets. Anyhow, the first publication I converted more than paid for the year’s fee. Thank you for inventing something that actually works and is easy to use.

Font Similarity
When the Font Similarity filter is turned on, InDesign will search for and display fonts that are visually similar to the currently displayed font. Illustrator CC and Photoshop CC have matching Similarity filters, and the results are usually very close to those you’ll see in InDesign.
