Everything You Need to Migrate from QuarkXPress to Adobe InDesign

By: Ian Hanes

Q2ID is designed for anyone who is migrating from QuarkXPress to Adobe InDesign or regularly uses both programs. It is a small and lightweight plugin that runs in Adobe InDesign to provide a user-friendly and integrated experience by way of an instantly familiar user interface. It allows users to seamlessly import any document created in QuarkXPress into Adobe's industry-leading design software while preserving all important formatting elements and everything else that's essential to your documents. It offers a dependable and affordable solution that saves a ton of time for anyone migrating between the two platforms or using both at the same time. No longer will it be necessary to recreate your documents from scratch, and it provides an excellent head-start for both publishers and designers alike.

Q2ID is available for Adobe InDesign either on the PC or the Mac. Using a powerful data conversion algorithm, it reliably exports all of the details into InDesign, allowing you to continue working on your projects right away without having to carry out lots of manual tasks to ensure that everything is how it was before conversion. The extension works with any version of Adobe InDesign from CC 2014 to the most current versions. It is also extremely fast, whether you're converting documents made using QuarkXPress 4.0 right up to QuarkXPress 10. This means that you can use Q2ID to convert up to 15 years' worth of projects. Never before has it been so quick and easy to migrate from one application to the other. What's more is that almost every item is converted accurately in the process, including text attributes, linked text boxes, page positioning information, anchored boxes, models, tables, layers, colors, styles, images fonts and more.

Flexible Pricing

Rather than pay a large fee up-front with Q2ID, you can instead purchase a subscription plan. This is ideal for most users, particularly those who only need to convert a relatively small number of documents yet still need a quick and cost-effective solution. A subscription will quickly pay for itself as well, given the enormous amount of time it will save you. The source files can be extremely complex sometimes, but this will not pose any problem for this powerful conversion utility. No job is too big or too small for Q2ID.

Q2ID is easy to use thanks to its complete and seamless integration with Adobe InDesign. Once you've installed it, all you need to do is open the Markzware menu that appears in Adobe InDesign, choose the file or files you want to convert and let the program do the rest of the work. Most conversion jobs take no more than a few seconds to complete, but despite the excellent performance afforded by the program, there is never any compromise on the quality and accuracy of the conversion. Once the progress bar fills up, your conversion is complete and you'll be able to start working with your converted content immediately.

You can purchase Q2ID as part of a one-year subscription bundle that automatically gives you access to all updates. There is also a permanent subscription available. You can learn more about Q2ID by visiting http://markzware.com/products/q2id/
