What is the difference between Perpetual and Subscription Licenses


Simplify Your Workflow

IDMarkz is designed to make complex tasks quick and easy. Preview your document, then, with a single click, open the file in QuarkXPress*, Affinity Publisher, an older version of InDesign, other pre-defined applications, or define your own.



Quick Look Previews

for InDesign, IDML, and InCopy

View document previews from any Finder window, with the push of the spacebar. This is a quick and easy method, to find the specific file you are looking for, if you do not remember exactly what you named it.

Thumbnail Previews

Preview the first page from the Finder

Optionally, turn on thumbnail previews, from the IDMarkz preferences, and view thumbnail previews, in any Finder window. This option will replace the default InDesign file icon with a preview of the first page of the document.

*requires macOS 10.15 or newer


Freebie Download

You can get a download that lets you use the IDMarkz preview feature, for free! This freebie is a great tool for viewing InDesign documents, at no cost.

The exporting features can be enabled at any time with the purchase of a license.

Started using IDMarkz a few years ago. Best purchase made. Well worth it. Converts files to various Applications. Quark files to InDesign in seconds.

I purchased IDMarkz to help in my transition process from ID to Affinity Publisher. When I first used the package I noticed some serious bugs, so I reported it to their tech support who then corrected the initial issues and released two or three updates in the process. I've been very impressed with the package and support I've received thus far.

Great work assistant

Been using Markware products for many, many years and as a foreign language typesetter working in 85 languages your products have been of invaluable assistance in getting projects completed.

I have been using this for years. We do not get many Cloud versions here, but this always opens them up. Markz has kept us from needing to upgrade to the cloud version of Adobe.

Question 🙂

First of all, thank you for this very functional add-on — I always use it in my daily workflow. As far as I remember I was able to hit space bar and be able to preview indds in the past but now it seems like I first need to run the app and then be able to (drag or simply hit space bar) preview the indds. Is this a new thing or am I doing something wrong? I thought when installed it installs itself into the system and that way I don't have to run the app every time I need previewing indesign files.

Good

I only need the free version as I have many old ID documents that I want to look at but not modify. I use other things for page layout now. ID is just too expensive.

The prog works very well indeed and opens far quicker than ID ever did. Full marks!

Saved the project

One of my customers had a problem with a corrupted indesign document - no chance to open it in indesign and no backup file.
With IDMarkz i was able to export the document to .idml and after that we could work in indesign again.
Great success

So long, Adobe

You have overcharged me for the last time, Adobe. So long forever. Using the flawless, affordable IDMarkz I can convert my InDesign files to many other formats, most importantly to Affinity Publisher which is my replacement for InDesign. Free at last! Thank you, Markz programmers!

Very good!

Very useful for getting previews of InDesign files. Exactly what I needed.
