Chapter 12. Assembling a Library > Designing an Index

Designing an Index

Converting the documents to PDF is only the first stage of Henry’s project. He also plans to create an index using Acrobat’s Catalog feature. Aw c’mon now, this is the fun part! The benefit of using an index rather than Acrobat’s Search feature is speed. When you are working with hundreds of documents, building an index and including it with the documents it indexes will make searching much quicker.

Before creating the index, Henry has to do some planning. He and his assistants have stored the converted documents in a single folder in a drive location that is accessible to all the IROs. As the index is generated, Acrobat adds indexing files and folders in the same folder location on the hard drive. Keeping all the content together prevents errors.
