[Charley]"Hi, was wondering if there's any way of converting qua"
The only way I can think of is converting it to PDF.
If you are using an older version of XPress you need to save the pages as EPS and then Distill them. Dunno about later versions, maybe they can export to PDF.
Another route is printing them as file (need the AdobePS driver for that). That will result in a .ps file which you can distill.
After that you can place it in Illustrator and edit the text....well it looks good, but the text is all cut in portions. Try it.
