Preview InDesign Files (Adobe INDD) High Resolution HD: ID Util macOS

You can preview InDesign files (Adobe INDD documents) in High Resolution (HD), using the ID Util macOS application by Markzware:

Do you use any of the Adobe InDesign CS5, CS6, or CC versions? InDesign’s default saves previews for only the first two pages of a document. These previews are 256 pixels x 256 pixels at low resolution. An application from Markzware can allow you to view those previews at high resolution (HD).

Markzware’s line of innovative software and services includes several solutions for Adobe InDesign users. Markzware’s ID Util for macOS is a stand-alone application that helps users to view, preview, open and package Adobe InDesign files, plus more.

You can get a fast look at your INDD document previews, in glorious detail, using ID Util. Learn more about seeing InDesign file previews with better image resolution, by watching this demonstration video:

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 Resolution previews for all pages.
• ID Util will attempt to start up the appropriate version of InDesign 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.

ID Util for macOS features the quality and reliability typical of Markzware products, as well as the versatility to handle a range of InDesign file versions. For graphic arts, print and publishing job orders, ID Util can efficiently and effectively handle InDesign viewing, previewing and packaging.
