Markzware (, a developer of data conversion software and desktop publishing tools, has released MarkzTools2. This new technology converts Adobe InDesign (INDD) files to IDML, using a stand-alone application.

MarkzTools2 features include: the ability to batch convert InDesign files into IDML files, the ability to create low resolution image previews, so users do not have to look at gray tinted place holder boxes, and the ability to display the version of a selected InDesign file. All these features are available without requiring Adobe InDesign to be present on the user’s computer.

MarkzTools2 conversion software is a Mac-only application and runs under Mac OS X 10.6.8 or higher. AnIinternet connection is required to activate the application.

MarkzTools2 is available as part of the MarkzTools Annual Subscription Bundle, which retails for $149/ year. This bundle also contains existing MarkzTools for InDesign CS6, CS5.5 and CS5 Mac InDesign plug-ins. Customers who already have an active MarkzTools Bundle Subscription, just need to revisit their download page and the new MarkzTools2 link will be available.
