    MS Publisher to InDesign Filter

    Mr. Met Community Member
      Very interesting email just arrived. I have a copy shop and the overwhelming majority of my production files from amateurs are Publisher. I'll be curious to see how this works. Then again, before I got the copy shop, I had to convert all that RGB to spot colors to print offset. I'm on the fence about getting it right away but I most likely will get it at some point in the new year. Here's the mailing:


      Markzware Announces The Immediate Release Of Microsoft Publisher To Adobe InDesign (PUB2ID) For Macintosh and Window Users!

      Easily Convert Microsoft Publisher Documents Into Adobe InDesign With PUB2ID v1.5

      SANTA ANA, California -- November 29, 2007 -- After a very long and vigorous, yet successful beta testing program, Markzware is pleased to announce the exciting worldwide release of Microsoft Publisher to Adobe InDesign (PUB2ID) v1.5.

      If you have Microsoft Publisher versions 2002-2007, you can now easily convert them into Adobe InDesign CS2 and CS3. Currently, Publisher documents from 2007 that are converted to XPS, are not supported by PUB2ID.

      Jessica Herbig, of Allegra USA said of the PUB2ID release, "I used a multi-page MSP document with a few pictures, and lots of text flowing from page-to-page. The original was a PC file, and I opened it on my Mac G5 with ID CS2. It was such a fast conversion process, and all of the images were automatically linked. The Windows fonts were missing, which was a quick fix. It worked great, and what would have taken hours to retype and set text, now would only take about 15 minutes to format. Thanks! Great work!"

      "This is an exciting time for Markzware. PUB2ID is a product that gives customers the power to convert Microsoft Publishers files into Adobe InDesign. With Adobe InDesign as a broadly accepted industry standard, this latest conversion tool enables the creation and re-purposing of content, thus saving a lot of time." according to Mary Gay Marchese, public relations director of Markzware.

      Pricing and Availability:
      PUB2ID is available for immediate download or on CD-ROM, starting at $199 MSRP. For more information please visit http://www.markzware.com/pub2id/ .
