Quick Look preview for InDesign® documents (CS2 – CC2019)

inddPreview comes with a Quick Look plug-in on board, that enables Finder to show preview images of InDesign® documents* without the need to open them with InDesign®.

The app itself is primarily a medium to provide the Quick Look plug-in. In addition you can use the app to copy those preview images to the clipboard to use them elsewhere.

Works with InDesign® documents (.indd), InDesign® template files (.indt), InDesign® snippets (.idms) and InCopy® documents (.icml) from CS2 to CC2018.

*InDesign® can embed preview images when saving the document. How many and of what size/quality they are can be configured in the preferences of InDesign®.

What’s New

Version 2.3

Added: support for InDesign® snippets (.idms) and InCopy® documents (.icml)

A Total Life / Time Saver

This is a fantastic app. I use it all day every day. Most of the documents I use have numerous images in them and it is so convenient to just hit the space bar and look before I open them. Thanks much.

Simple and saves a lot of time

I use quick look a lot. It's in my nature. I can't live without it. Having an app that I use all the time (InDesign) without quick look drove me insane.

This did the job. It saved my sanity.

Thanks! ,

Great app!

I create a lot of indd documents, and this was just what I needed. Great customer service as well. Thanks!
