Our head office dezinger people asked me to look at Q2ID pricing. I've received a question from 'higher-up'... "Doesn't InDesign import Quark files?"What's the current status on this? We've just moved to CS5.5. Would want to be able to open ANY Q file. My guess is that Q2ID would offer a more reliable/featured route. Here's one post 'out there'... 'Indesign CS5 can open Quark files, but the quark file needs to be "backsaved" to Quark 4 if it is a newer quark file version - q2id is a much better solution'. Sounds like a cheapskate road to ruin, if still true.

No, not true. Just social ineptitude on my part. Are you referring to the Paul Fenech show? I'm embarrassed I've not watched it; he's great. But I shall now. Too many things to do these days...
\ou know, saving back is not really a great idea. You lose all the features built into the newer versions. If said desinger uses drop shadows or any of that other transparency crap, QXD.V4 will drop it out. If you have creative control, that's one thing, but opening Quark files in InDesign in leu of buying Quark is asinine and a disservice to your customer.
I understand what you're saying, but... and I cross fingers/touch wood here..... not had a Q file lob in in, literally, 3 years. Aussies dropped the BigQ like it had Ebola virus. Every now and then, an off-shore one comes in to our dezingers. I can see why it's a risk-assessment thing. I've got Q7.2, and working (a miracle?) on my iMac still. We're so out of touch I couldn't even tell you what version it's on now. I know for sure they are never going to fork out on more Q. Out of my control. I regard getting permission to get Q2ID as a great achievement.
