Summary0002663: indexing
DescriptionIs styles-based indexing in the current roadmap for Scribus? I've started using Scribus to design a culture magazine (Broken Pencil) that runs a lot of reviews, and provides an index at the back of the magazine of all the (100+) reviews. In Quark i could generate an index based on the header style for each review ... something like this would be great in Scribus.
TagsNo tags attached.

I dont think it will be based on styles. Can you send me a screenshot of your document text and the index where it appears in btw?

thanks for getting back to me. i'm not sure what you're asking -- the magazine i'm working on contains about 50 pages of short, 50 word reviews, each with it's own small headline. i'd like to be able to automatically generate an index page that would contain all of those headers, sorted alphabetically, with page references to the page where the review is placed. since the headers have a style in common, i though using the style to create the index would be the way to go...

administrator   ~0006909 is a howto for making tables of contents in Scribus 1.3.x. Indexing may be similar, however, at this point in time we cannot support per character/word attributes.

I'd like a screenshot of one page of a review, and its index entry. Just as extra info in my mind.

Yep, thought so. Would be possible in the current scheme if you just set the index item attribute to be Lickety-Split, once indexes are supported there. Of course, a style based one may be very quick, ie automatic. This is why I've not yet done indexing, only TOC.

cbradney, is it a "won't fix" or "acknowledged"?
