QuarkXPress to InDesign
Q2ID is an affordable InDesign plugin which allows you to convert and open your QuarkXPress documents in Adobe InDesign. No more re-creating documents from scratch. The Q2ID InDesign plugin gives you a big head-start on QuarkXPress to InDesign file conversion.

Key Features

QuarkXPress to InDesign plugin, Q2ID, converts virtually all items

Page Positioning

The conversion process will maintain each element’s page position and z-index (depth order).

Layers

Layers created in QuarkXPress will be recreated in InDesign.

Linked Text Boxes

Linked text boxes will be recreated in the new document. Differences between the QuarkXPress and InDesign text layout engines will likely cause the text to split between the linked boxes differently.

Runarounds

Although there are differences in the runaround settings between QuarkXPress and InDesign, you will find that the automatic conversion process is highly accurate.

Style Sheets

Both Paragraph and Character Style Sheets are maintained through the conversion process.

Images

Placed image data is retained. If images are missing they can easily be replaced.
