Markzware Announces The Release of PUB2ID v2 For Adobe InDesign CS3 and CS4
Publisher To InDesign Now Runs With Adobe CS4
"Markzware's mission is to make it easier for the creators and printers to work with the applications they are comfortable with so users can seamlessly integrate these valuable products into their existing workflow," said Mary Gay Marchese, public relations of Markzware.
The Adobe InDesign user simply clicks on "File" in the toolbar, then "Open," and selects the Microsoft Publisher file for conversion. This simple two-step process initiates the conversion and opens the document in Adobe InDesign, saving graphic artists, prepress and printing professionals countless hours that would otherwise be spent recreating the document from the ground up.
Dave Matthews, who heads up the prepress department for Progressive Printing said, "We have around 10-percent of our customers who use [Microsoft] Publisher. The PUB2ID plug-in has allowed me to stop booting up the PC for that one job per week. ... PUB2ID makes it very easy to deal with these files from customers. ... [It] was a great investment and paid for itself in the first week; because I had a big book to deal with, and if I didn't have the PUB2ID plug-in, I would probably still be working on that book!"
Joe Phillips, Minuteman Press expressed, "One of the few programs that I have used that actually works the way I was told it would." Phillips continues, "unlike every other conversion program we have used, there was no lengthy & complex process to convert the file. You simply open the file as if it were an InDesign file. It is almost as if the file were sent to you with the wrong file extension."
Graphic artist Davina Sauer said, " Worked great! It brought everything over, including the layout, fonts, graphics, & formatting." "If a font was not installed on my system it would tell me what it was so I could load it. The best part was that everything was still editable, from the fonts to the graphics and layout."
The conversion is enabled with a single click using the InDesign File->Open menu. No more re-creating documents from scratch; PUB2ID gives you a big head-start.
