Overview  
Indexer main window (blurred)

Indexer, at the right, displays the pages of a book and the index entries for each page. The index entries for the current page are highlighted with a yellow background.

With Indexer, you scroll though the book adding/deleting entries for each page. You can also edit and extend the list of terms available to be assigned to pages. as entries.

Index Terms window, blurred Index terms are listed in a separate window like the one at the right. Double clicking an item adds it as an entry for the current page. Typing in the list window scrolls it to the first term starting with what you have typed. You can have multiple terms window scrolled to different places in the list. The TermsEditor window
TermsEditor (new in Version 3.3) manages the list of index terms. It displays the terms alphabetically and offers tools for adding, revising, and deleting terms. A good place to start is with the File menu's "Scan for Proper Nouns ..." command. You select text files and it scans them for word strings that might be proper nouns, instantly creating lots of houn phrases; the majority of which should be in the index.
Finally, the Create Index menu command combines the entries from all pages to produce an index. See sample at the right. At present other index styles are produced manually. Send your index to me along with the desired format.
