Markzware, developer and inventor of patented preflighting technology and content conversion, has announced an upgrade to PUB2ID, its conversion solution to convert Microsoft Publisher to Adobe InDesign for both Macintosh and Windows. PUB2ID v3 adds full support for Adobe CS5 Creative Suite.
PUB2ID (Publisher to InDesign) is a plug-in for Adobe InDesign CS5 or CS4 that provides a quick, affordable method for converting Microsoft Publisher content into new Adobe InDesign documents with a single click using the InDesign File->Open menu.
PUB2ID translates many details of the content within Microsoft Publisher documents and quickly re-creates the document in InDesign. It can convert Publisher files, including items such as page size, positioning, color correction, fonts and styles, text attributes and tables, text formatting effects, text wrap, layers, text flow, linked text boxes as well as automatic image extraction of all images embedded in the Publisher file.
“With PUB2ID, it is possible to bring all of your old MS Publisher documents into the 21st century and open them magically and painlessly in Adobe InDesign,” Michael Shaw, MaUsE president and editor of MaUsE DoubleClick, said in a statement.
Users can upgrade to PUB2ID v3 from PUB2ID versions 1 and 2 for $99.00, or purchase and download the full version of PUB2ID v3 for $199.00 here.
