New PDF data conversion software from Markzware for InDesign
Markzware has announced a brand new data conversion software, PDF2DTP for Adobe InDesign - PDF2DTP for InDesign CS6 provides an easy and affordable method to migrate content from a PDF into an editable format within Adobe InDesign.
PDF2DTP will provide a detailed conversion, bringing PDF elements into a familiar layout and graphic design environment for creative professionals, so that changes can be made as needed. This CS6 plug-in will be particularly beneficial to users of InDesign in the Adobe Creative Suite.
PDF2DTP will recover embedded images and save them in a job folder, as well as place the text, frames, images and colours back into the InDesign document. It will convert a PDF to InDesign, whether the original PDF was created in QuarkXPress, Microsoft Word or an Internet web page.
Dan Figlo, principal at Moblpress, who has been testing the software, says: “In our design business, we are sometimes asked to work from PDFs when clients don’t have access to the original design files. Our current workflow involves reconstructing the pages from scratch and using the PDFs for little more than a reference. To speed up this clumsy process, we have tested numerous dedicated applications and InDesign plug-in’s. Some of the apps we tested chugged along so slowly that we wondered if they had hung, and when they did finish, there were often inaccuracies in the content or layout to clean up. Two even crashed InDesign CS6. None came close to the processing speed or produced cleaner or more accurate InDesign files than Markzware’s PDF2DTP – even though it was still in Beta when we tested it. The choice was a no-brainer for us.”
While PDFs are nice for viewing, it is difficult to actually edit PDF in order to make changes for business productivity purposes. The new Markzware PDF2DTP for InDesign CS6 plug-in makes it simple to edit PDF content within a new InDesign document.
