Converting QuarkXPress documents in InDesign

Q2ID (QuarkXPress to Adobe InDesign) is an Adobe plug-in for InDesign. It provides a quick, easy and affordable method for you to migrate all your QuarkXPress content (v.3 - v2018) into a new Adobe InDesign document (CS5 - CC2018). The conversion is enabled with a single click using InDesign File->Open. 

Q2ID provides intricate details of the content within the QuarkXPress document to be instantly re-created within InDesign. Items converted from Quark include: page positioning, color models, fonts and styles, images, and text attributes as well as tables, layers, blends, runarounds, linked text boxes & anchored boxes, pantone colors and other color models.

The Q2ID document conversion technology will save you countless hours of scanning, re-keying and formatting. This product converts and transforms files created from within QuarkXPress on either the Microsoft Windows or Apple Macintosh OS, into an Adobe InDesign file, which then can be opened on both platforms.
