I have received a .qxd file which is a Quark Express file and need to convert it to .pdf. I thought it would be a simple task, but now I doubt it... Do you know of any (preferrably free) program on online service to do the conversion ?

I should mention that I don't have the Quark program or the Acrobat Pro, just the Reader...

The easiest option is to actually use QuarkXpress to make your PDF. If you happen to use InDesign there is a converter program however it's much more limited (only supports Quark 3.x and 4.x files - not 5.x-8.x) than using a free trial if you know what version of QuarkXpress was used to create the program.

You can download a free trial of QuarkXpress 8 from Quark.com (Windows or Mac). Within Quark you can then export a PDF directly from within the program.

If you're on Windows, you can install PrimoPDF to print to PDF Files.

Mac Users should be able to print to a PDF file by click the PDF button in the print dialog box.
