Sonar Bookends InDex


Sonar Bookends InDex is a powerful index generator capable of producing both an index and a table of contents in InDesign. Several types of indices can be produced, from a basic index to a multilevel index. The index can include chapter and file names and can be of a single file or an entire folder. Cross-reference information can also be included.

There are three basic types of indices that can be produced by Sonar Bookends:

• Word frequency — a fast, effortless index based on how often words appear in the documents being indexed (words which are common, and therefore relatively unimportant, are automatically eliminated).

• Word/phrase list — based on a user-supplied list of words and phrases stored in a text-only file; each word or phrase is indexed. Entries can incorporate advanced-indexing techniques such as Boolean operations and wild cards. Since the word/phrase list is a text-only file, it can be generated in a variety of ways. For example, the list can be created using a word processor, downloaded from another computer, exported from a database, and so on.

• Proper Noun — Sonar Bookends can find and index proper nouns. Using capitalization and punctuation rules, Sonar Bookends can determine which words make up a proper noun. Proper nouns which occur too many times (above a user-defined maximum frequency) are automatically eliminated.

The three methods can be mixed and matched to produce a final index. For example, a word-frequency list can be combined with a proper-noun list, discarding any unwanted words and proper nouns. The list could also be augmented by typing in additional phrases. The final word/phrase list would then be given to Sonar Bookends for indexing. The index is saved as a text file for import into any word-processing or desktop-publishing program.

Other features which add to Sonar Bookends' flexibility and versatility include:

• case-sensitivity option;

• support for non-English characters and special symbols;

• capability of reversing first and last names;

• treatment of hyphens based on context; and

• sorting of both single-level and multilevel indices.
