PageZephyr now supports .indd and .qxd formats
Markzware has launched v2 of its utility for content searching and retrieval, PageZephyr. The software provides tools for searching through QuarkXPress, InDesign, and MS Publisher files, while enabling text to be exported in RTF or TXT formats. Version 2 offers new ways to search files, incorporating support for less common formats such as .indd, .qxd, and .pub. Users can also now search for a specific area of interest across different file types.
Advanced searching capabilities have been expanded to include “and”, “or”, and “not” terms to further refine results. The app still provides tools for content searching using specific keywords or phrases in any language, while allowing users to target files by size or creation date. Support for popular publishing formats includes QuarkXPress 4.0 to 8.10, Adobe InDesign CS through CS4, and Microsoft Publisher 2002 to 2007.
PageZephyr 2 requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 or higher and is available as a free 30-day demo from the company’s website. The full version is regularly priced at $200, but is currently being offered for $150 when accompanied by a web-coupon that lasts until March 31st of this year.
