    Default How to use the RECOSOFT tool in Indesign?

    HI,

    Do you know how to use the RECOSOFT tool in Indesign?
    I heard it's a stunning tool! It converts any pdf file into Indesign (.indd or .idml), creating both Links and Fonts folders. Apparently it works better for pdfs that originally come from Indesign files....

    That sounds great! But what about the quality of the Indesign file? Can you send it for translation without any kind of preparation?

    I'd rather not. It would be like sending a converted file you generated doing a "save as".... you get section breaks, line breaks,etc... and when you try to download the translation, everything is messed up.
    I am wondering if this recosoft converted file is of any use for a DTPer: would he use it and "prepare" it, or would he just recreate the whole file from zero?

    Also, I think the links exported by the tool are only in low resolution, which is useless if you have to edit images in photoshop or Illustrator.
