Some of the items that Q2ID will convert into InDesign formatted documents include fonts and style sheets; linked images and graphics, color blends, linked and anchored text boxes, CMYK specifications, Pantone selections and other color models and page positioning.
The upgrade will cost existing users of Q2ID USD$99.00 while first-time users can buy the latest version for USD$199.00. Multi-user licenses are also available.
