Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your OPML files and convert them to InDesign ICML files. Yes, it’s that easy.
Converting from OPML
The Outline Processor Markup Language (OPML) is an XML format for outlines, that is mostly used to exchange lists of web feeds between web feed aggregrators. It uses the RFC 822 date format, which is considered obsolete. Fans of the RFC 822 date think it’s a good idea to have only two digits to represent a year. But I have no idea if they were born 1900 or 2000 or if they’ve ever heard of the much cooler RFC 3339. Or how they would call it: RF 39. Anyway. You’re here because you want to use this format. Or you have to. My condolences.
The files end with
.xml by default.
Converting to InDesign ICML
An ICML file contains Adobe InCopy stories. This is the file format you want to use to collaborate with a designer that uses Adobe Indesign. I have no idea why you should use this file format instead. There are so many free, open, documented, better text formats out there. An Adobe file format would be the least I’d use to store relevant information. But I don’t want to stop you. If you are here to convert a few files online, you have probably a reason already. At least it’s free to convert the files here. So good luck with your project! Keep up the good work!The files end with
.icmlby default. More about InDesign ICML files
