How different is INdesign as opposed to QuarkXPress?

    It wasn't easy, I can assure you that. I started the biz in Quark, so it was like learning how to crawl again after riding in a Ferrari for the last two years. Hopefully I can get back to a run and make things look good.

    Just made the switch from Quark 4 to InDesign CS3 today. Anybody know how to convert quark templates into InDesign templates? Is there a quick and easy way to do this? (and no, don't say "have composing do it)

    Can you even do this? I've tried opening Quark files in InDesign, and it won't let me.

    You should be able to. You just have to change the file type on the open menu to a .qxd document.

    No prob, Wicked. I have to keep reciting my ID knowledge before I forget it. It's been three months since I've used it. Fuckabuncha Quark. :mad:

    I just downloaded CS3 -- it will only let you open Quark documents from versions 3.3.x to 4.1.x. The document I had was Quark 7.3, so I wasn't able to open it.

    How did you download it? Not that I'm ... ummm ... interested or anything ...

    Downloaded the trial version from Adobe's Web site. Maybe if it were a permanent version, I could crack open later Quark files, though I don't know why they'd disable that feature (out of a bunch of others) only in the trial version.

    Oh, yeah, if you wanted a version, I'm sure you could find it on utorrent -- that is, if you were into downloading such programs on others' dimes. (This behavior doesn't have the Wicked Seal of Approval, FWIW -- boots will have to speak for himself on issuing/denying his seal.)

    Is there a list of what newspapers use Quark and what newspapers use InDesign?
