Display Image Preview Data for Missing Images in Adobe InDesign

Do you have missing images in InDesign CS5, InDesign CS5.5, InDesign CS6, InDesign CC, or CC 2014? Markzware‘s MarkzTools for InDesign plugin can display any image preview data found in the original Adobe InDesign file:

MarkzTools for InDesign image previews
Markzware MarkzTools InDesign Image Previews
One thing MarkzTools does that is pretty cool is:
If you have missing images, it will display any image preview data found in the original InDesign file. In the test pictured above, the original file was created in InDesign CC 2014 and saved and was also exported as an IDML file. The images were then moved to another location, so they could not be found.

The image on the left shows the file converted using MarkzTools and displays image previews, even though the images are missing. The image on the right is the result of converting the IDML file located in the same folder as the original InDesign file.

How to use the Markzware MarkzTools Menu in the MarkzTools for InDesign plugin. This data conversion software can open InDesign CS5-CS6 in a higher InDesign version, including InDesign CC and CC 2014:

Markzware Menu

Markzware MarkzTools for InDesign MenuUnder the Markzware Menu select MarkzTools and then Convert InDesign Document…

Which version of InDesign?
Which Version of InDesign CC to OpenYou may not know whether the file you’re trying to open was last saved in InDesign CC, InDesign CC 2014, InDesign CS6, or etc. By default the Enable menu is set to All Higher Version Documents. With this setting, you do not have to know the specific version of InDesign used to create or most recently modify the file. If you select InDesign CC 2014 Only, then only CC 2014 files will be available for conversion. The same applies to the InDesign CC Only setting.

TIP! – For the smoothest experience, leave Enable set to All Higher Version Documents and just open your InDesign files. Select the file you want to convert and click Open. MarkzTools will now convert your file. That’s it!

Using InDesign’s Standard Open (Command-O) Option
