Q: Can an issue built in the new version of App Studio include interactive pages built in InDesign? The publication in question will be built in QXPv9.3. Some advertisers would like to provide interactive ad pages built in InDesign. Can these be uploaded as-is to the publishing portal and added to an issue, or will they need to be rebuilt in QXP?
A: Yes, you can combine all input methods, so combine QuarkXPress projects, InDesign files, HTML5 and XML in App Studio and assemble them in an online page plan and rearrange as you like. And then export them as one issue.
