Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Indexing terms, part of InDesign CS3 Long Documents.
As I am sure you are aware indexing really isn't for the faint of heart.…Indexing is an age-old skill requiring discretion and nuance…and a lot of manual labor.…It's not something that computers are that good at really. But InDesign has fairly robust indexing tools,…which can at least allow us to create a simple index for our document.…Here are some of the terms that we're working with.…Topics: the subjects that are included as the index entry.…
References, which are the specific page references …on which those topics occur.…Cross references, allowing us to refer back to other index topics.…And a concordance list which is just a list of topics or keywords that occur in your document which you can then use to…auto-generate index entries.…Now as any real indexer will tell you,…that's not a proper index.
