Automatic Index and Table of Contents Generators

When your manual, report or book needs an index, you need a member of our Sonar Bookends family of products. You no longer have to mark entries or search endlessly for every entry. Instead just process your InDesign document with one of our products. You can generate an index based on word frequency, proper nouns, a list of words and phrases you supply, or any combination of the three. It's even simple to include chapter and/or section numbers. Additionally, subjects of sentences can be found and indexed automatically, occurrences of items to be indexed can be filtered, and much more with our professional version.

So before you go crazy making an index the slow and painful way, get one of our indexing solutions for InDesign: either Sonar Bookends InDex or Sonar Bookends InDex Pro. Free demos of our indexing products are available for downloading.
