How do I open a QuarkXPress document? by jimoblak
Posted: 19 Apr 05 (Edited 2 Mar 07)

òInDesign only opens Quark 3 and 4 single language documents.  InDesign CS2 can open QuarkXPress Passport 3 or 4 files.
òQuarkXPress Passport documents must be saved to a single-language file unless you are using InDesign CS2.  

òInDesign cannot open QuarkXPress 5 or newer documents.  QuarkXPress 7 can export down to version 6.  QuarkXPress 6 can save down to version 5.  QuarkXPress 5 can save down to version 4.  

òmarkzware.com offers file conversion utilities.

òInDesign may have trouble opening QuarkXPress documents where third party XTs were used.  Try saving your document from QuarkXPress without these XTs enabled.

òAfter conversion, some graphics may be set as 'non-printing'.  You can correct this easily with a free script from http://studio.adobe.com

òInDesign CS has improved ability over InDesign 2 to open Quark documents.

If you are still having trouble opening a QuarkXPress 3 or 4 document, try resaving the document in Quark as a new file.  Then open in InDesign.

No conversion is prefect.  Be certain to fully review your document for text reflow and bad image links.
