Quark to Epub...please help!

Post by grandmalpress » 07 Mar 2011, 20:30

Hi,
I need to convert Quark files to epub files for a publisher I work for. I have Quark Express 7. I have heard the easiest way to do this is to import it into Word. But for the life of me I have no idea how to do this or if it can even be done. When I copy and paste into Word all formatting is lost.
I am open to all suggestions on how best to do this (or other methods of making these into ePub files.) Going from PDF to ePub does NOT work. There are way too many error issues associated with that conversion. And I only have a trial version of InDesign.
Thoughts?

Hi,
If you and your publisher can wait, the brand new v.9 of QuarkXPRess might help you. Just read Quark's website.

If not, try a google search, using "pdf2ePub" term, or try this Acrobat plugin.
Hope this helps.

Thanks Max. I will definitely have to get Quark 9. For now I was able to get around it by saving as a PDF, exporting the PDF to Word, updloading the Word doc to Sigil, and doing some editing before saving as an ePub file. The end result looks great but it did take a while to go through the whole book and fix weird paragraph breaks and stuff.
