PageZephyr Search is a stand-alone content search application from Markzware. This program can search InDesign native files for text. You can view the text or copy it to text editors, word processors or layout apps.
- Find text located in Spotlight-indexable local volumes, and then display that text.
- Open related documents in Adobe InDesign (with that InDesign version loaded).
- Copy and paste the found text into a text editor.
The PageZephyr Search Mac content search application supports InDesign CS through InDesign CC files. It indexes content in Apple Macintosh storage volumes that have Spotlight enabled. Users can search InDesign for text in INDD documents. The app shows you the highlighted search term in InDesign, for context awareness.
How to Search INDD Creative Cloud Files with PageZephyr Search Mac:
- Type in the word you’re seeking.
- Hit Enter. (You’ll see a list of files on the left and the text within the highlighted file on the right.)
- To see the word in context, right click “Show Selection in Document”. (If you have an appropriate version of InDesign loaded, it’ll highlight that word and show you where it is in the document.)
- To Copy and Paste the text out, you can either click and drag to select text, or hit Command-A (Select All), and select Copy. (That will copy the text to your clipboard, which makes it available for use in other applications.)
