Today, Markzware, Inc., released IDMarkz® SE, a stand-alone application now available for Windows 10 & 11. IDMarkz SE converts InDesign files to IDML, for opening your page layouts in earlier versions of Adobe InDesign, but also in QuarkXPress, Affinity Publisher, and more. Markzware helps to democratize Adobe InDesign content for use in several popular desktop publishingapplications. IDMarkz is part of the new “Markz” line of applications and replaces ID2Q.
IDMarkz SE is a stand-alone way to get InDesign files into the standard IDML format, with just a click. With this affordable stand-alone technology, users can open, export, convert, and automate the conversion of Adobe InDesign files, allowing users to better control their content. IDMarkz SE differs in appearance from the IDMarkz version for Macintosh.
For example, IDMarkz SE has a simple interface and does not include the Preview and File Info features as does the Macintosh version. However, it will ultimately convert .indd documents, in the same fashion. IDMarkz SE is extremely fast and allows the user to set up their application, not only to open Adobe InDesign page layouts in other DTP (Desktop Publishing) applications, but also to directly export IDML.
Markzware customer, Herbert Kellner, shares his experience, “While working on the manual for the Job Contender, we found out we could no longer open some older, important InDesign files. Because of a very tight budget, we moved away from Adobe software to more affordable apps. A graphic designer pointed us in the right direction. His recommendation was Markzware, a leading software publisher.”
IDMarkz SE allows users to convert documents from:
InDesign to IDML;
InDesign to Affinity Publisher;
InDesign to QuarkXPress;
InDesign to InDesign (lower versions down to CS4).
