As an InDesign user, you may begin to wonder “Now, where is that story? Which document was that in?” However, not all .indd documents have thumbnails, let alone have thumbnails for every page.

So, you can use the IDMarkz app by Markzware, to view previews, until you recognize which file you want. IDMarkz can be a very helpful InDesign file workstation.

Markzware develops preview, preflight, and file conversion software for printers, publishers, graphic designers, creatives, and other industry professionals. Markzware’s IDMarkz is a multi-featured application that processes Adobe InDesign files for use in numerous file formats on the macOS platform.

Export InDesign Story Text

In the “Export” section of IDMarkz, you can export InDesign story text, without needing to use a plugin! Markzware‘s app enables you to export InDesign text stories as HTML, RTF, TXT, IDML and other file formats.
