Answer: PageZephyr is a standalone application that allows you to search and convert text content in InDesign, Publisher and Quark documents. The native applications do not need to be loaded or installed in order for PageZephyr to function. For initial installation, please see the PageZephyr Installation section of the PageZephyr Manual.

Question: Since PageZephyr is a Mac only application, can PageZephyr manage files created on Windows computers?
Answer: Yes. PageZephyr can search and extract InDesign and Quark content from files created on either Mac or Windows computers, as well as index extracted files. MS Publisher is a Windows only application and PageZephyr can handle these Publisher files as well.
Question: Does PageZephyr alter my original document?
Answer: No, PageZephyr does not alter your original InDesign, Publisher or Quark file in any way. The editing capabilities of PageZephyr allow you to edit and repurpose content text that PageZephyr can extract from InDesign, Publisher or Quark documents.
Question: How many files can PageZephyr handle?
Answer: We have tried several thousands of files here. Theoretically, the system limitations for a 64 bit application (under Snow Leopard) are the maximum number of files that can be handled. But, just like Spotlight, PageZephyr will tax your system resources (CPU Usage, Physical Memory, Virtual Memory, Free Disk Space) when large numbers of files are being processed. See also PageZephyr system requirements.
Question: There are less files indexed than I would have expected. Can you help with this?
Answer: We strive to make PageZephyr handle as wide a range of files as we can. If you look in the Activity Window, you will see stats for Indexed, Failed and Unsupported files. If you are missing files, please check these lists for your missing file. PageZephyr allows you to collect Failed and Unsupported files, with the hope that you will send these files to us for inspection. This will help us to improve the product. The best way to send us the collected archives of Failed or Unsupported files is to use the PageZephyr Tech Support Form. If your archive exceeds 1GB in size, please let us know and we will work with you to get the files submitted for inspection. PageZephyr can also export to plain text or RTF for various uses, such as uploading to a blog.
Question: Can I use PageZephyr in an automated workflow?
Answer: Using the standard versions of PageZephyr in an automated workflow is prohibited by the PageZephyr License Agreement. If you are interested in using PageZephyr in an automated workflow, please contact our Business Development Group at email@example.com
Question: I am a large corporate customer and 30 days is just not long enough to evaluate PageZephyr. Is there anything I can do?
Answer: Yes, please contact our Sales Department and request an extended PageZephyr demo trial. Someone will evaluate your request and let you know if we can accommodate your request.
