Markzware (, a developer of data extraction
and conversion software and inventor of preflighting, has released an
upgrade to its PUB2ID conversion tool for InDesign CS3 and CS4.
PUB2ID v2 (Microsoft Publisher to Adobe InDesign) is a plug-in that
enables users to convert native-application Microsoft Publisher files
(MS Publisher versions 2002 through 2007) to Adobe InDesign while
preserving the content, as well as the styles and formatting.

The Adobe InDesign user simply clicks on “File” in the toolbar, then
“Open,” and selects the Microsoft Publisher file for conversion.
Markzware’s PUB2ID v2 is available from Software House International
(SHI), Software Spectrum, Programmers Paradise, MacConnection, CDW
and through Markzware Direct Sales or at Markzware’s online store.
The manufacturer’s suggested retail price is US$199 and the upgrade
is $99 for PUB2ID v1.x users.
