QXPMarkz, part of the new ‘Markz’ line of applications, is replacing Q2ID. The stand-alone QXPMarkz application allows users to convert and open their QuarkXPress documents in Adobe InDesign, without the need for the QuarkXPress application.
This product encompasses the same Markzware > Convert QuarkXPress document menu from the application that it always has, and also has a stand alone drag and drop user interface. QXPMarkz converts Quark files to IDML, which opens up several possibilities. Mainly, it allows users to convert Quark files to InDesign without having QuarkXPress loaded on their computer. It also allows them to send those IDML files to Affinity Publisher version 1.8 or higher.
QXPMarkz also has a few other tricks up its sleeve including the ability to export the text out of a QXP file and save it as plain text, RTF or HTML. Another trick is users get a rough preview of the QXP file. This preview can be exported as several different bitmap formats including PNG and JPEG. And finally, users can even view a file inspector panel with file details, including the number of images and fonts detected in the QXP file.
