IDMarkz for InDesign—Previews, Exports and Converts InDesign Files


Staff member
Markzware has launched IDMarkz, an application “hub” for Adobe InDesign files. IDMarkz displays InDesign previews, exports InDesign files to IDML and image file types, plus converts or opens InDesign files in other DTP applications.

Users can open, preview, export, convert and automate the conversion of Adobe InDesign (.indd) files. For previews, IDMarkz uses its own engine and technology, generating its own, high-resolution previews—early users have been giving rave reviews.

Features include:
Open InDesign files CC 2020 in earlier InDesign versions, QuarkXPress, Affinity Publisher, Acrobat, or Illustrator.
Preview any InDesign file & view basic file info. Zoom previews & drag thumbnails from the preview area, to create a PDF.
