Appendix A. Converting QuarkXPress Files

Perhaps the greatest concern to QuarkXPress users who want to use Adobe InDesign is the large store of XPress files on our hard drives. Fortunately, you can convert most of your QuarkXPress files and templates into InDesign documents. In this appendix, we’ll tell you what you need to know to make this feature work for you.

Note that InDesign CS can open QuarkXPress 3.3 and 4.x documents and templates. It can open QuarkXPress Passport files of the same versions if they have been saved as single-language files. QuarkXPress 5 files must be saved backward to QuarkXPress 4 format. Files from XPress 6 are an even bigger hassle: You have to save them as version 5 files, then open them in version 5 and save them down to version 4. (InDesign can also open Adobe PageMaker 6.5 and 7.0 files as well; we talk about that in Appendix B.)
