Pricelist, need to double prices in a row...

found it. Math Grabber from Meadows. My little Xtension booklet from 2000 says it's $99...I go to their website to buy it, it's now $500!!! Wow, that's 100% inflation every year, what, will it be $1000 in 5 more years? Must be nice.

Pricelist, need to double prices in a row...

I had an Xtension years ago, 7-8 years ago that allowed you to draw a selection box, if you will, around a VERTICAL column of text in a Xpress doc, then modify it. Here's what I need to do. I have a large pricelist, and the last tabbed column is the price. I need to double the prices somehow (for a ...

GOODBYE & GOODLUCK

You bring up good points, but I don't care anymore. I'm going for it. I look at it this way - if my printer doesn't take ID files, then they don't want my business, and I'll find a printer that does. I'll also buy the Markzware Q2ID plugin for $200 bucks and give it a go. Of course I will keep my co...

Need honest opinions

I was in the same boat, and decided to go ahead and download the IDCS2 trial for 30 days. Even without a manual or anything, I was impressed enough to buy the Creative Suites CS2 Upgrade from Photoshop so I have it, and intend to start using it soon. I just have so little faith in Quark 7 being the ...

PM to Quark conversion

My client, a large park district, has hundreds of pagemaker docs...all simple fliers, brochures, maybe 2 color on some. These translate very well, if not perfect into IDCS2. This is why it's not so easy to just say to rebuild them. Sure, they could, but if they don't have to, that's even better. The...

PM to Quark conversion

the PM to Quark program from Markzware last time I looked, which was 2 weeks ago, only converts to Quark 5, and apparently does not work when opening them in 6.5. I have a consulting client who is a longtime Pagemaker person. I convinced her to go with Quark over InDesign because of that plugin...on...

PM to Quark conversion

I successfully open quark 6 files in Indesign. They were originally built in 4, but have been resaved in 6.5 a while back. That's how 99% of all my quark files are, since I just upgraded to 6.5 a month or so ago...so, for me, this conversion will be handy, even if it's not perfect.

PM to Quark conversion

I couldn't agree more. I ordered the Creative Suites CS2 Premium upgrade just to get InDesign...got it today in fact. I tried opening Quark files with it, and it works great. So, ID can import Pagemaker AND Quark files, and Quark can import nothing else. You were smart to do it yourself though.

PM to Quark conversion

too bad you don't have Quark 5. You could use the Markzware PagemakerToQuark convertor software...would probably cost less than paying someone to convert the docs.

placed Illustrator CS file, preview is terrible looking

wow. It's scary that you knew all that! I did download the 6.5 version, and it appears to work, but I get a "not enough memory" error when I click on the image. It's not THAT big, mainly illustrator swirly shapes and things...I shut it off for good and will just live with things as they are.
