Markzware ships ID2Q7
Markzware has released an update to its InDesign-To-QuarkXPress conversion utility: ID2Q7 is an XTension that easily and effectively converts Adobe InDesign files (v1.5 through 4.x) into QuarkXPress v6.x or 7 documents with a single click. The conversion process includes elements of the documents such as object positions, colors, fonts, text attributes, images, etc. Additionally, ID2Q also converts between cross-platform files, i.e., converting PC InDesign files to Mac QuarkXPress and vice-versa. "ID2Q solves a giant problem for many design studios. Being able to open an InDesign document in QuarkXPress makes it possible for those who tried InDesign but prefer QuarkXPress to salvage the projects they created in InDesign. It vastly increases page layout options for the entire industry," according the company. ID2Q7 is $200 and currently available for Mac users only (a Windows version is in development).
