PDF Replica Issues

Hi

I represent a UK publishing house and we are currently looking at the Unlimited Mag plus product. As a start we want to use this to under pin our current 23 replica apps. However, these publications are created in Quark.....as such is there any easy way to create and review magazines directly from pdf's without having to use InDesign?

Moving forward we want to create new non replica magazines and for this we would look at using InDesign - so no issues here, however, it's critical that we find a way of publishing the replica porfolio created in Quark as this will form the foundation of using the unlimited account.

I would be grateful for your advice as we can't move forward until we have an understanding of this.

Kind regards

Hello there David,

In short, as it stands right now our plugin only works exclusively with InDesign.  We do have a free tool that will quickly convert a properly sized PDF file (with multiple pages) for the iPad to a .mib file (Mag+'s proprietary file type).  However you would not be able to add features & enhanced functionality going this route.  If you simply want to start with PDF replicas though, this would be the way to go:

Otherwise we recommend utilizing InDesign to get to most out of our powerful tools!

Please let me know if you have any follow-up questions & I'd be happy to answer them!

Hi Mike,

I try this tool. Result so bad. 

Mib version set is 3.1 and all pages shifted over the edge and small size (but in assets its size for Retina 2048x2048 px)

David,

For now, this is our only option for generating quick PDF to MIB versions.  Could you send over your PDF that you're trying to convert?
