You know the problems:
- A client has a PDF to which he wants to make “minor” changes. He doesn’t have any of the source files, no native layouts, no images — all that remains is the PDF.
- A document requires localization but all that exists is a PDF in a foreign language. The two documents must be identical and the layout must be built again from scratch.
- Your hard drive dies or a folder is accidentally deleted and all you have left, all that can be recovered is a PDF file. There are corrections to be made but first you have to start completely over with a brand-new layout.
In each case, you need images, layers and transparencies, fonts, colors and styles. You need a desktop publishing layout in QuarkXPress in which to work.
Now with Markzware’s PDF2DTP you can turn that PDF into a QuarkXPress project!
