Quark releases free document converter

October 14, 2014

Quark has announced a new Document Converter that allows QuarkXPress users to open legacy QuarkXPress files in QuarkXPress 10. It’s a free tool and supports documents created with QuarkXPress 7-10, saving the need to keep an older copy of QuarkXpress around. However, it won’t open legacy documents created in versions 3-6. It can batch process a whole folder as well as individual documents.

The free QuarkXPress Document Converter can be downloaded here: http://www.quark.com/Support/Downloads/.
