I ran across a three-and-a-half minute video that demonstrates how to convert an InDesign document to QuarkXPress, using Markzware’s ID2Q. When you’re handed an InDesign document that really should have been built in QuarkXPress, this $199 XTension can save you tons of time and frustration.
Tip: click on the resolution button in the lower right corner of the video (it normally says 320p) and change it to 720p. Then click the four-arrow icon to its right to see everything in much greater detail.
