Search InDesign CC (Creative Cloud) files, using Markzware‘s PageZephyr Search Mac:

PageZephyr Search is a content search application (for the Macintosh platform) by Markzware. It allows users to search InDesign CC or CS files (INDD documents) for text. Users can view the text in PageZephyr Search.

Find content by searching InDesign files located in Spotlight-indexable local volumes. PageZephyr Search can then display that text. Users can open documents in InDesign (with the appropriate version loaded) or copy and paste text into another program.

PageZephyr Search can:

  • read InDesign CS through InDesign CC files (Adobe InDesign v3-v9), whether created on a Mac or Windows computer.
  • archive old and new InDesign native files.
  • search text content of archived InDesign files for specific words (customer name, product name, keyword, etc.)
  • copy text content out of an InDesign file, without InDesign installed on your Mac.
  • search an InDesign file archive for a specific word, open the InDesign file (with InDesign installed) and be taken to the found word.
