    Index generation problem

    Ulrich Dirr

      Hi,

       

      when generating an index InDesign always writes only one page number for multiple entries on the same page. This is what is normally expected and wanted. But if page numbers have a special formatting, say bold or italics, these should be written to the index in addition to other entries on the same page.

       

      Example:

      Index markers in index panel:

      Keidanz, Hermann 4 -> Number Style Override, character style: italic

      Keidanz, Hermann 4

      Keidanz, Hermann 9

      Keidanz, Hermann 19 -> Number Style Override, character style: bold

      Keidanz, Hermann 25 -> Number Style Override, character style: bold

       

      Generated Index:

      Keidanz, Hermann, 4, 9, 19, 25

       

      Correct Index would be:

      Keidanz, Hermann, 4, 4, 9, 19, 25

       

      Does there exist a scripting solution to prevent this failure?

       

      Best regards,

      Ulrich
