Markzware releases new Indesign plug-in

The latest version of Markzware’s MarkzTools for InDesign pulls off a neat trick – it can open a higher version of an Adobe InDesign document in a lower version.

Thus, anyone using InDesign CS5 or CS6 will be able to open InDesign CC (Creative Cloud) or CC 2014 documents. This applies to InDesign CS5, CS5.5, CS6, CC, and CC 2014 and works on Macs running OS X 10.6.8 – 10.10.

Mary Gay Marchese, public relations for Markzware, explained: “MarkzTools will show previews of missing images in converted files, whereas IDML files will show a grey box. This feature can be useful by allowing people to see more of what the original file looked like.”

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
