Thar’s Gold $$$ In Those InDesign Files!
Now, You Can Really Mine and Search Your Content
In All Your InDesign CS through CC Documents!!
You need to search the text content of InDesign documents located on your computer.
Maybe you are looking for that brochure you created years ago for that software convention.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could search for a term or phrase you know you used in the document? Maybe a nugget like “2010 Software Convention” and see a list of all of your InDesign CS
through CC documents containing that phrase?
Well then, you need PageZephyr Search!
This Stand-Alone application for OS X allows you to search and view text in 1000′s of InDesign documents.
Once installed PageZephyr Search will find and index all of your InDesign documents on your computer, making the documents searchable. Not only will you have the ability to search and view the text content from within our Stand-Alone application, you will also have the ability to quickly find the InDesign files you are looking for using Apples built in Finder Search.

PZ is a one trick pony-and that is a good thing, because it does one trick exceeding well. It saved me hours recently when I was trying to find a version of a three year old InDesign file. I am a book designer, and often receive chapters from other designers. When I need to find a file, I can fire up PZ, go make a coffee and come back and see the file ready for me to work on.
And, I have to confess, my own file naming discipline is not as tight as I’d like. PZ means I don’t have to fall victim to my whimsical file naming.
