Markzware has announced the release of OmniMarkz, a combination of its standalone Desktop Publishing (DTP) conversion tools, IDMarkz, QXPMarkz, and PDFMarkz. This consolidation will allow Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, QuarkXPress, and PDF users to preview, examine, and convert their documents for usage in graphic design, publishing and printing workflows.

 In addition, OmniMarkz contains features not found in its standalone tools. These include a full file inventory preview, and the ability to output reports in five different file formats (HTML, JSON, RTF, TXT and XML).

According to Markzware, OmniMarkz allows anyone, even without running Adobe or Quark applications, to open, preview, convert and automate the conversion of DTP applications files.

“Now, you can process your DTP and PDF files, so that you can convert them to Adobe InDesign Markup Language (IDML). IDML files can be imported into many DTP applications, including QuarkXPress and Affinity Publisher, and other workflow applications,” Markzware stated in a release shared with PrintWeek.

“With OmniMarkz, you can share or reuse your PDFs, to make new edits or design changes. You can also convert PDF Annotations to IDML and view them in InDesign. This explosive technology allows you to extract the text from the resulting IDML file so that you can save it as RTF, TXT, or HTML,” it added.

Markzware claims that OmniMarkz uses its own engine and technology to generate “instant, high-resolution previews”, rather than rely on low-resolution or non-existent file previews. “You can export the previews in several different image formats, including PNG and JPEG,” it stated.

“The built-in Inventory View panel displays additional document details. You can easily see the number of images and fonts detected and much more,” the release added.

Mary Gay Pettit, director of Public Relations, expressed, “Markzware helps to democratise content for use in many popular desktop publishing applications. Markzware’s new ‘Markz’ line of products has managed to always deliver more than expected.”

Pettit continued, “OmniMarkz erupts with all of the functions and features of our powerful, stand-alone conversion technology, plus offers the award-winning technology of the FlightCheck brand. It doesn’t get any better than this, for printing and graphic industries worldwide, which we have been dedicated to serving, over the past 30 years.”

OmniMarkz is currently compatible with macOS 10.12 or newer and a Windows version is in the works. A 12-month subscription package will cost USD 299, and USD 399 for a perpetual license.
