Markzware Announces ID Util for macOS BIG Update Release!

Press release from the issuing company

Santa Ana, Calif. – Markzware, leading innovator of data conversion software and desktop publishing tools, announces a big update release for Markzware’s ID Util for macOS. ID Util is now available globally and supports Adobe InDesign CC 2018!

ID Util is a FREE standalone MacOS application that allows you to preview InDesign, IDML, and InCopy files. In addition, you can view and export InDesign styled story content, as well as view the paths to linked images, and used fonts. ID Util can also export the document previews. Want to know which InDesign version a file is? Drop it onto ID Util and find out. This can ensure you don’t accidentally up-save to a newer version.

View Page Previews
With ID Util for macOS, you can view Page Previews that are supported for InDesign, IDML and InCopy files (CS2 through CC 2018). Now, you can modify your InDesign preferences to save all page previews at high resolution, for better preview support.

Preview Adobe InDesign, IDML, and InCopy files, without the need to have Adobe software installed on your system. Export those previews as PNG, JPG or PDF files. Share the exported previews with customers or colleagues who may not have InDesign.

View Quick Look Previews
View previews of InDesign, IDML and InCopy documents from any Finder window, with the push of the spacebar. Optionally, turn on thumbnail previews, from the ID Util preferences, and view thumbnail previews, in any Finder window. This makes it quick and easy to find the specific file you are looking for.

View and Export Styled Stories
Get access to the story content of an InDesign file (CS2 through CC 2018). Export the styled stories as RTF, TXT, or HTML, or select and copy, right from the preview window. This comes in handy, when you may no longer have InDesign installed on your system, or when you receive InDesign files from others, while you do not have access to InDesign.

Jamie McKee (mackeycomposition.com), book designer & typesetter, said, “ID Util is a free Mac OS application by Markzware that allows you to see InDesign previews, styled story content, linked images, and used fonts — even if you don’t have InDesign! You might think the fact that it’s free means its usefulness is limited, but I’m happy to tell you that couldn’t be further from the truth!”
