Quark Publishing System supports InDesign

Quark Publishing System is Quark’s publishing workflow designed for magazines, newspapers, and other businesses that require a collaborative publishing environment. It enables these businesses to develop automated routines for managing publishing workflows, from inserting text on the page to layout and printing.

The new Adobe InDesign support is done using a QPS XTension. This plug-in automates the routing of projects from QuarkXPress or InDesign and allows monitoring the status of these projects in both programs, as indicated by the information provided by Quark.

The XTension allows ingesting in QPS of documents created in InDesign, as well as articles produced using InCopy. It also allows you to view the listings by preview, by listing, and by project along with associated information, dragging and dropping Microsoft Word content onto InDesign, and sharing the same Word content in both QuarkXPress and InDesign simultaneously.

The XTension is available for both QPS 7.5 and QPS 8.
