What do you like best?
It does a pretty amazing job of translating old legacy files left over from the digital "dark ages" when the beast known as Quark lumbered about making life generally weird for people doing layout work. I'm sure the new Quark is fine, but we use Indesign for this sort of work. Now you can pop that publication open and groove with Indesign seamlessly, in most instances.
What do you dislike?
I have noticed the occasional juxtaposition of items in the layout. Every now and then there will be a different ordering of layers. For instance, sometimes an object in the background will come all the way to the front, but this is usually easily remedied by sending it to the back again. I do wish there was a batch processing function that works similarly to how Photoshop can take a designated group of files and export a batch of one type of file to another type.
Recommendations to others considering the product
If you have loads of old Quark files that are inaccessible, this is your solution.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I work in the creative services department at a museum where most all of the original artifact labels and wall graphics were created close to 20 years ago in Quark XPress. There were hundreds of files that would have required us to re-build in Indesign, should we have chosen to go that route, which isn't practical at all. Q2ID allows me to go back and re-purpose the old files for a new life in Indesign where they are accessible and editable. This saves us time and money.
