PageZephyr Search is a stand-alone application that can read the text contents of an InDesign file. It helps you to find specified words or phrases in an INDD file. You can also copy that text and paste it into your favorite text editor, word processor or layout app. The found keywords are highlighted in the search results. Click on the highlighted word and, if you have a version of InDesign that can open that file, the file will be opened in InDesign. You will be taken to that word in the InDesign document.

PageZephyr Search is a simple content search tool from Markzware that allows users to find keywords. You can either open the document in InDesign or copy out the text. Search through InDesign files on Spotlight-indexed volumes to find keywords. You can also copy and paste text out of PageZephyr Search in plain text format (TXT).
