[prMac.com] XChange International, the source for extended technology worldwide, are pleased to announce release of the Universal Binary version of InDesign to QuarkXPress 7 (ID2Q7). ID2Q7 is Markzware's conversion tool that allows users to easily convert InDesign files into new QuarkXPress documents. The Universal Binary version of ID2Q7 performs faster, taking advantage of the Intel processor-based Macintosh(R) platform.
ID2Q7 is a data conversion tool that creative professionals depend on to migrate their content into a different work environment that may be more convenient. This XTension to Quark provides an efficient way to accomplish this task saving countless hours of re-scanning, re-keying and re-formatting. Macintosh users will appreciate the optimised performance of this great utility.
All elements of the InDesign document, including object positions, colours, text, text attributes, images, etc. are converted in a single operation. ID2Q7 allows users to select several conversion options and convert their files in a few easy steps. ID2Q7 also converts cross-platform files, converting Windows InDesign files to Macintosh QuarkXPress documents.
After installing ID2Q7, users simply select the Convert InDesign Files item from the Utility menu within QuarkXPress to open an InDesign document. Once open, users are presented with a dialogue that includes several options for controlling the document's conversion. For text, users can choose to import InDesign style sheets, convert styled text to plain text, or remove all text. For pictures/graphics, users can convert with/without previews, or can choose to exclude the pictures and convert only the picture boxes. Hidden layers and objects that are on the pasteboard may be optionally converted as well.
Other features include:
* Support for "runaround on all sides of an object" - InDesign documents converted to QuarkXPress are now able to have text runaround on all sides of the object
* An ID2Q preference has been added to the QuarkXPress preference menu. This menu gives the user the ability to select the language they would like the ID2Q menu to be displayed in. This preference also allows the user to synchronise the language displayed on ID2Q with the language of the operating system
ID2Q7 is available now through XChange International. Registered users of previous versions of ID2Q7 v.2.x can upgrade for free.
