Using QuarkXPress 2016 and higher and EVO’s great “HTML to PDF converter”, you can use this workaround to convert HTML to PDF and to an editable QuarkXPress layout:
- Navigate to the following location: http://www.evopdf.com/demo/default.aspx
- Input any URL (in my example: http://www.quark.com/Products/QuarkXPress/InDesign-Alternative/) and convert to PDF.
- Import the resulting PDF into a new layout in QuarkXPress 2017.
- “Convert to editable objects”.
- You probably have to replace fonts or merge text boxes. Make the changes needed so that it looks great. Check whether anything didn’t convert well.
- Export as PDF or as HTML using QuarkXPress 2017. Set up color management to get good results.
Instead of using EVO you could also use the “Print as PDF” out of your browser
