How to Resave InDesign Documents with High Resolution HD Previews, via ID Util:
ID Util’s Resave HD section is below the file version section in the Preview Window. This feature requires an appropriate version of InDesign to be installed and active on your computer.
• When viewing a document’s previews, with InDesign installed, click the “Resave HD” button in the Toolbar. The button is active only for InDesign files. Clicking it will start the process of resaving the current document with high image resolution for all page previews.
Markzware‘s ID Util for macOS will attempt to start up the appropriate InDesign version and create high resolution previews (1024 x 1024 pixels) for all pages in your InDesign document. This feature overwrites the original document. Since there is extra preview data involved, the file size will increase.
• If the resaved document has missing images, InDesign’s “missing links” message will pop up. Click on either the “update links” or “don’t update links” button, to continue the Resave HD process.

View InDesign Page Previews
For better preview support, modify your InDesign preferences to save all page previews at high resolution. You can preview InDesign, IDML, and InCopy files, using ID Util, without needing to have Adobe software installed on your system. Export those previews as PNG, JPG or PDF files. Share the exported previews with workflow members who may not have InDesign. View the page print size as well as the file version (for example, InDesign CC 2015).

Zoom InDesign Previews
When viewing a Document’s previews, you can see the Zoom Tools at the bottom of the Preview Window. Using the slider or zoom segments, you can zoom in and out. Zoom in to view the page preview in more detail, or zoom out to view thumbnails of multiple pages of the document at once.

ID Util for macOS is a convenient app for InDesign users who want to see quality previews of their artwork. This unique Markzware application can be a beneficial part of your creative workflow.

“The Resave HD option generates high-resolution (what InDesign calls “Extra Large 1024 × 1024”) previews if you have an appropriate version of InDesign installed (CS5 or later).”
– Jamie McKee (mackeycomposition.com), book designer & typesetter, U.S. university presses
