by ZweiBieren Build Your Index with Indexer Indexer logo
You have a book.
You need an index.
You can do it better.
Indexer can help
Indexer shows you a page of text, its index entries (in yellow), and a list of all possible index entries. One double click adds an entry to a page. When you are done, Indexer formats the index from your entries.
Indexer version 3.7

Essential to a good index is a good set of terms. With Indexer you edit the terms list in a tabular display, as at the right. Trigger phrases are in the left column while terms, sub terms, and reference terms are to the right.

To the right is a bit from the index generated for Hansen, Susan B., Religion and Reaction (Rowman & Littlefield, 2011)

Indexer has created indices for three books. Now it needs a few more users to guide improvement. Become a user and I will help you make your index. In particular, since Indexer has limited index formatting, I will reformat your index as needed.

Other indexing tools: Professional indexing tools like CINDEX and SKY Index concentrate on editing the index itself. Indexer is a feeder task--ensuring that the right index entries are associated with each page of text. Yet other tools augment one specific word processor, as DEXter works with MSWord. For a comprehesive list of indexing tools, see Software Tools for Indexing.
