    AFAIK, the index has to be created in InDesign.

    You might want to try the scripting forum. That gets a lot more traffic than the InCopy forum.

    Aad Metz - Did you have any luck figuring out the best way to do this? Did you end up using a script to generate your index from a list of tags or did you go down another route

    There is a script that can make index markers based on character styles. Create a charater style for your editors and let them 'mark' with this. Then when returned in InDesign you can run the script.

    Find the scipt here:

    Correction: not based on character style but a colour!

    I've posted a question in the InCopy Scripting forum about 2 months sgo but have had no repsonses. There has only been 3 posts on that forum in the last 11-12 months.

     

    Bob, as this question was asked nearly 12 months ago, have you any updated advice on this question? Is there a different forum I could try?

    Try the InDesign scripting forum.
