Markzware’s ID Util for macOS offers multi-version support for a range of Adobe InDesign (INDD), InDesign Markup Language (IDML), and InCopy (INCL) files. Whether you want to preview InDesign CS5, CS6 (Creative Suite), or CC to CC 2018 (Creative Cloud), ID Util can help you.

ID Util‘s built-in capability enables you to quickly and easily get fast access to InDesign previews, by simply clicking the spacebar. If you need to be able to preview in more detail, zoom in. If you need to view multiple preview pages at the same time, zoom out.

Would you prefer ID Util to display the default thumbnails in the Finder window? Turn on the thumbnail previews preference in ID Util’s Preferences.

How to Use Markzware’s ID Util:
• Install Markzware’s ID Util for macOS.
• The top section of the Welcome Window is the active Drag and Drop area. By dragging files into this area it will turn blue, if ID Util recognizes the file type. When you drop, a preview will be generated.
• You can also preview the selected file while in Finder, by clicking the spacebar. To see more detail, zoom in. To see multiple pages at once, zoom out.

Want to send out your preview in a file format that is commonly used in workflows? ID Util for macOS lets you export InDesign previews, for printing or for sharing with approved recipients, who can benefit from these documents.

“There’s one other preview option tucked away inside ID Util’s Preferences—the ability to enable Finder Thumbnail Previews. In other words, this enables a preview of the InDesign document in the Mac Finder when viewing files in Icon, Column, or Cover Flow view, rather than the generic InDesign document icon. Even better, this option enables a Finder Quick Look view (initiated by selecting a file in the Finder and pressing the spacebar) for a large document preview. … The welcome window in ID Util features an easy drag-and-drop interface.”
