XChange International is offering a 20% discount on a bundle of three utilities from Markzware that let you convert documents among QuarkXPress, InDesign and Microsoft Publisher.
ID2Q converts InDesign documents to QuarkXPress format.
Q2ID converts QuarkXPress documents to InDesign format.
PUB2ID converts Microsoft Publisher files to InDesign format.
All three work with documents created on either Windows or Mac OS. Of course, any features used in the source application that are not included in the destination application are ignored. It’s also important to start with as clean a document as possible, with all fonts active and graphic links intact.
The Markzware Conversion Tool Bundle costs £333, a savings of £84. This special offer expires 29th February, 2008.
