Quark to Flash?

Postby quarterhouse » 24 Jan 2006, 12:11

Has anyone ever heard of a way to convert a Quark document directly to a Flash (.fla) document?

Is there a roundabout way that anyone knows of?

Thanks,
Anthony

Macromedia's FlashPaper was a virtual printer to create SWF files.

True. But my problem is retaining the URL links. Is there a way to keep any hyperlinks contained in the Quark document intact when "printing" to a FlashPaper file?

Warning: I am strictly speaking from my bum at this point as I have not tried this...

If it is possible to export a PDF with links, maybe you can convert that PDF to SWF.

You may still be able to accomplish this with Flashpaper. I was so disappointed with my own results with Flashpaper that I did not keep it around long enough to become familiar with it.
