Testing InDesign CS2 (WinXP) to convert Quark 5.0 doents - Adobe Indesign Windows

My company does all its marketing materials in Quark and is evaluating whether or not to convert to InDesign. I downloaded the trial InDesign CS2 to test it out with our current Quark materials. I'm having trouble figuring out what would be the best way to convert Quark to InDesign. I don't know if it is just the trial version but I am having difficulty opening Quark, .pdf and .eps doents with the trial software. Are there plug ins not enabled on this trial version?

    Default Testing InDesign CS2 (WinXP) to convert Quark 5.0 doents

    My company does all its marketing materials in Quark and is evaluating whether or not to convert to InDesign. I downloaded the trial InDesign CS2 to test it out with our current Quark materials. I'm having trouble figuring out what would be the best way to convert Quark to InDesign. I don't know if it is just the trial version but I am having difficulty opening Quark, .pdf and .eps doents with the trial software. Are there plug ins not enabled on this trial version? When you go to File->open in InDesign, it recognizes Quark doents but when you try to open, it says that file type is not supported for various reasons including a possible plug in issue. Any ideas?

    You should do a search of the forum; there has been considerable discussion on the topic. But one thing that stands out is that Quark has imposed licensing issues to thwart file conversion. Presumably to stem the tide of people switching based solely on the merits of the respective programs.

    Save those QXP 5.0 doents back to 4.0. Quark starting encrpyting
    there file formats at version 5.0 making it illegal for Adobe to add a
    conversion filter to ID.

    Thanks to both Blackburn and Levine. I saved the doent as Quark 4.0 and it was functional in the trial InDesign. There were a few font/image issues but I think as long as your image links are squared away, conversion shouldn't be too much of a pain.

    Thanks again!
