    IND 3 or 4: script for making INDEX

    caviafrits
      Hi,

      When typesetting books in Indesign cs3/4 (OSX), some of our texts contain words tagged like this: [r]word[#r].

      Those are the words which should end up in the index. It's a timeconsuming job to select these tagged words by hand, apply the 'create a new index entry' (apple-u), and move on to the next one.

      Can someone write a script that automates this nasty job for me? Search for the word between the paranthesis, apply apple-u, move on to the next one.

      I hope it won't be difficult for someone who is used scripting around in indesign.....

      greetings, frits
