Convert QuarkXPress documents from within InDesign using the QXPImport Script.

QXPMarkz offers a QXPImport Script that allows integration with InDesign.

Installing the QXPImport.js Script adds Menu options in InDesign that allow for converting and opening QuarkXPress documents from within InDesign. This is a familiar way to use QXPMarkz for users coming from Q2ID.


  1. Install QXPMarkz into your “Applications “folder.
  2. Install the QXPImport Script from within QXPMarkz using the Script Installer
    (Click on “Tools” and select “Script Installer”).
  3. Launch InDesign or relaunch, if it is already running.
  4. Under the “File” Menu, navigate to “Open QuarkXPress File…”
    (or, under the “Markzware” Menu, select “Convert QuarkXPress Document…”).
  5. Choose a QXP file to convert and open in the Open File Dialog.
  6. Sit back as the QXPImport Script and QXPMarkz automate the process of converting and opening the document in InDesign.
