PDF2DTP for QuarkXPress 9 Released by Markzware

Tuesday, July 03, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Markzware, a proven, leading publisher of data conversion, preflight and search technologies for QuarkXPress, Adobe InDesign and Microsoft Publisher announces the release of PDF2DTP for QuarkXPress 9.

PDF2DTP is an XTension module for QuarkXPress that enables you to open and convert PDF documents within QuarkXPress 9 and supports both Macintosh and Windows platforms.

Glenn McDowall, pre-press for Midway Colour Print said, “I have been wanting this sort of functionality in QuarkXPress for many years. Many times, I’m asked to make extensive edits to PDFs and no one has the original DTP files, and it’s often a clumsy process – placing the original PDF multiple times into QuarkXPress produces PDFs where everything is duplicated – it will be good to have another option.”

PDF2DTP provides a quick, easy and affordable method for you to migrate content from PDF into an editable format within QuarkXPress. Once in QuarkXPress, users are now in a flexible and familiar environment, allowing for much easier editing. PDF2DTP for QuarkXPress 9 will convert that entire, flattened PDF right back into QuarkXPress, a desktop publishing (DTP) layout.

PDF2DTP converts all elements that are possible to bring over from the PDF, including text, colors, and images. It will also extract the images embedded within most PDFs and saves them in a separate folder.

Paul Ramos, publishing professional, Difusao Cultural said, “PDF2DTP is fantastic!! I tried it on a PDF for a book that had 524 pages, and it took less than 5 minutes to make the total conversion. It even isolated the images in separate files.”

The PDF data conversion is enabled with a single click by selecting PDF2DTP -> Convert PDF from the QuarkXPress Utilities menu. No longer re-create documents from scratch or convert just one page at a time. PDF2DTP gives you a big head-start in converting your PDF to QuarkXPress 9.

“Markzware does not need any further recommendations. They’ve created another wise tool for wise users,” Jianu Marian production manager at Ecologic Group SRL.

System Requirements, Pricing and Availability:
PDF2DTP for QuarkXPress 9 is available immediately at the PDF2DTP Store for $199. You can obtain the system requirements for Macintosh and Windows platforms, as well as purchase through the PDF2DTP Product page.
