Indexing the book

Creating a good index is an art, as every reader who has tried to find a reference to a specific topic appreciates. Indexing is also a work that traditionally requires extraordinary attention to detail, with precise checking and rechecking of the entries. InDesign CS2 makes the job easier by facilitating the mechanical aspects of the process.

To create an index using InDesign CS2, you embed index references in the text. When you add or delete text, and the pagination changes, the embedded index references flow with the text. This ensures that an updated index always shows the correct page. These embedded index entries can display markers to show their location, or you can disable their visibility as you work. The index markers themselves never appear in the printed document.
