I am SOO ready to bin Adobe - I hate their business model, and their ridiculous pricing.

But, I have 10+ years worth of archived indesign files. 

I assume at some point in the future someone will either create a plugin, or you will natively be able to import indd docs?

I would switch in a heartbeat if this was possible, but at the moment, i have to keep indesign purely because i cannot re-create everything on my work archive.

 

Loving your work.

Andy

We will be able to import InDesign IDML files but not .indd files. The feature is being written but we don't have a timescale yet.

 

Awesome thanks!

I'm a current Adobe Creative Cloud user but used QuarkXpress up to version 6 back in the day. It would be great to import .qxd files as well.

Will you be able to save to the IDML format as well?

This will allow you to send IDML files to those who want/need to work in InDesign.

I'm just getting used to the beta version of Publisher and I'm deeply impressed with what I can do in beta. 
Thanks, Serif, bye bye InDesign. Glad to read that there is a way to import InDesign-docs. Will try . . . 
I love all your apps very much - in my opinion they 
are a better choice for designers and all the tutorials are fantastic.

Thanks a lot!!

Just to be clear, it hasn’t actually been implemented yet.

Ah, ok. That's why it didn't work as I tried some minutes before ;) So I will be patient and looking forward getting this feature in the future. As always you will find a way – I'm sure! It would be much easier to work with because I did all my designs in InDesign yet. So former work woudn't be lost!
