HyperIndex

Create a hyperlinked index in InDesign for ePUB.

To prepare your index for hyperlinking.

1, Using an index created in a dedicated indexing system.

a, Open all the documents connected to the index.

b, Place the index in the appropriate pages in your document.

c, Use IndexImporter / MarkerMover to get the index embedded.

d, Select the content of the text frames containing your placed index and launch HyperIndex.
==================================================================================

2, Using an index generated from InDesign.

You are probably aware that InDesign will mark the text frames that it creates for the index so that it can update them, also these text frames will not export to ePUB.

a, Open all the documents connected to the index.

b, Create your InDesign index in a temporary text frame and then copy it to the desired index pages.

c, Select the content of the text frames containing your copied index and launch HyperIndex.

**IMPORTANT. Hyperlinked indexes that use text frames created by InDesign native index tools will not be exported to ePUB. Copy and paste your index into a new text frame before running hyperlinker.
==================================================================================

While HyperIndex is building the index you will see three progress bars.
Hyperlinking progress bars InDesign indexing
An alert will be displayed once your index has been hyperlinked.


Your index is now hyperlinked and will export to PDF or ePUB.


The plugin can work on single documents or books. 

You can download a demo script here.
