  1. Yes, of course. If there are any major issues, as there were with your previous file, please send a document in with some details of the problem. https://markzware.com/support/ticket/
  2. Alex, I just wanted to give you a quick update to let you know that we've released an update with the fix for your file. We also added some other features, made some improvements, and squashed some bugs. You can view the release notes for more information and download the update.
  3. Thanks Alex. We received your file this morning and I took a look at it. I see what your talking about. We have to update our conversion to handle some text wrapping settings in the master page that we hadn't run across before. I appreciate you sending us the file so we can improve our conversions. We should be able to get an update out early next week.
  4. Hey Alex, I'm glad you found the issue. Would it be possible for you to send us your INDD file? I'd like to take a look at it and see if it's a problem with our conversion, the way that Publisher is handling the IDML, or just something with your particular file. If it's something with our conversion we'll fix it. If it's a problem with how Publisher is handling the IDML, we can pass the information along to Affinity. Or if it's just something odd with your particular file we can give more info. Both us, Markzware, and Affinity are constantly improving the conversion and importing of IDML so these odd issues are interesting to us when they arise. If you don't mind, you can upload the file through our support form, https://markzware.com/support/ticket/, and mention that Eddie asked you to upload the file.
  5. Thanks for making sure it got in the right places Patrick.
  6. In these unique times, we want to help users transitioning to and from other DTP applications. We know that many designers are having to make budget cuts, and many are moving from Adobe to Affinity. We want to help you guys move your existing work to Publisher. So, we are giving away the full version of IDMarkz for usage through the end of May 2020. This is not the freebie version that locks out the IDML export; it's the full version with all features enabled. There are no charges or signups required to take advantage of this; it's how we feel we can help during these unprecedented times. If you are already using the freebie version of IDMarkz you can use the following license details to activate the full version to be used through May 2020: Email Address: doingourpart@markzware.com License ID: bf2f3a43-8466-4861-b5e6-2e0e00e4ac83 If you don't have the freebie, you can get all the information you need to get started here. Please feel free to share this with your friends and colleagues. We'll be monitoring how this pandemic affects those in our industry, and we may extend the free usage beyond May 2020. Sorry Windows users, I can't give a timeline, but we are actively working on a Windows version.
  7. Yes, thanks, Mike. IDMarkz can convert InDesign files (INDD) to IDML, without InDesign present. It is a macOS only product (currently). But if you have InDesign files that you need to open, and don't have an InDesign license, IDMarkz gets the job done. I've discussed with my team, and we've gone ahead and reduced the price on both the subscription and perpetual products by $50, starting immediately (now $99 and $149). Opening INDD files in Publisher could be completely automated, double click the InDesign file in the Finder, and within seconds you can be editing in Publisher. Here's a link to a video showing the Open in Affinity Publisher feature in action (https://markzware.com/idmarkz/open-in-affinity-publisher/). If you have any questions or would like a file converted by IDMarkz for testing, please feel free to reach out to me.
  8. For anyone who may have lots of InDesign Template files (.indt) that they'd like to move to Affinity Publisher, IDMarkz could be a viable solution to move those over. IDMarkz works with the Publisher v1.8 beta to convert the .indt files to IDML before opening in Publisher. Here's an 86 second video showing the process (the video shows the conversion through PDF, but if you have the Publisher v1.8 installed IDMarkz converts using IDML instead), IDMarkz Open In Affinity Publisher Feature. Does anyone have an InDesign Template (.indt) that they'd like to have converted as a test/example?
  9. Thank you, Patrick I've been following this thread for a few months, but I've been hesitant to post until now. Serif has done a great job with the PDF import, and the IDML import is looking good as well, with some minor issues as to be expected. We hope to be able to support those Affinity Publisher users looking for a way to convert .indd files to .idml to be opened in Publisher. I understand that many Publisher users still have InDesign and can export IDML directly, it's unlikely they'd need the paid features, but maybe they'd find the IDMarkz freebie interesting. I'm here to try and get the word out about what we can offer and answer whatever questions I can. We know that IDMarkz is a new product on the market, and we're eager to prove that it can be invaluable for many users. If you've tried the IDMarkz freebie and are interested in what the IDML conversion output would look like, you can get in contact with me to send me a file. Or if you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to me directly.
  10. We're in the early stages of planning the Windows development of IDMarkz. It's too early to give any timelines, but it is something we're aware of and actively pursuing. If you'd like to stay up to date with product news, you can signup for our Markzware Newsletter (we won't spam you with lots of junk).
  11. IDMarkz could be used to convert .indd to .idml, which can be opened by the Affinity Publisher beta v1.8. IDMarkz also offers an "Open in Publisher" feature, which automates the conversion and opening of the file. The feature uses IDML in the process as long as Publisher v1.8 (currently in beta) or higher is installed; otherwise, it falls back to PDF. Of course, you can export an IDML out of InDesign and import that into the Publisher beta. IDMarkz is most useful for users who don't have access to InDesign. If you have or receive .indd files but don't have access to InDesign to convert those files to IDML, then IDMarkz is for you. You can also run IDMarkz as a freebie to get previews and some other useful information from .indd files, without the conversion features. The freebie might be interesting for all users, including those who own InDesign. Disclaimer: I'm a software developer at Markzware, developing IDMarkz. IDMarkz uses the same IDML conversion engine as MarkzTools2 has for the last 4 years. We've added previews, integration with Affinity Publisher, along with some other features, and released IDMarkz.
