    We are having issues converting PMD files to INDD while maintaining transparent backgrounds of placed EPS.

      My intention is to convert 1,000+ documents so the end users can upgrade from PageMaker 7 to Adobe CC Indesign without the end user using CS6.

      We are having issues converting PMDs to INDD while maintaining transparent backgrounds.

      When using Indesign CS6 to open the PMDs created with PageMaker 7.0 the transparent background is lost. The photos with transparent backgrounds are EPS objects placed into the PMDs.

      I followed the instructions from http://www.justskins.com/forums/issues-with-linked-images-3889.html and this worked but but seems labor intensive.

      I have tested http://www.kahrel.plus.com/indesign/batch_convert.html to batch convert but again I lose transparencies.

       

      How can I batch convert my PMDs to INDD and maintain the transparent backgrounds of the placed EPS files?
