Is there a quick way to convert Quark files into Indesign without having Quark?

I have InDesign CS4 and need to make changes to a Quark file.

IF it's a Quark 4 file, you can open it directly in InDesign.

Otherwise you can try Q2ID from Markzware. It's pricey ($199); I've never used it, although I've heard good reports.

Beyond that, you'll have to recreate it somehow.

    Just a note.. I use the Q2ID plug in... it's works very well.

    Q2ID is the only game in town worth mentioning. I consider it pretty cheap, actually, considering what it does. It rocks. Commented Jan 19, 2012 at 20:33

You can use Convert Quark to Indesign. It's £3 a conversion. I use it it I need to convert single Quark files every now and again. Spreads to cost of buying the software as well! :)
