What Is Converted

Page Positioning
The conversion process will maintain each element’s page position and z-index (depth order).

Layers created in QuarkXPress will be recreated in InDesign.

Linked Text Boxes
Linked text boxes will be recreated in the new document. Differences between the QuarkXPress and InDesign text layout engines will likely cause the text to split between the linked boxes differently.

Although there are differences in the runaround settings between QuarkXPress and InDesign, you will find that the automatic conversion process is highly accurate.

Style Sheets
Both Paragraph and Character Style Sheets are maintained through the conversion process. Years of team perfecting the conversion process ensures that all style data is copied over.

Placed image data is retained. If images are missing they can easily be replaced.

Note: Requires QuarkXPress and Adobe InDesign.
