Suggestion: When you have the Studio/Index panel open, and when you use it to add an indexed word(s), it would save a lot of clicking/dragging the Studio/Index panel list up and down IF the software would immediately "jump" to the newly added item in the Studio/Index panel. The next step, usually, is to find the word(s) and check-mark each one you wish to include in the index. I find that I'm constantly scrolling back and forth to find the newly added word(s).

Not a bad idea, but I do it differently. I add index marks as I go, and then when I'm done I work down from the top of the Index panel toward the bottom doing the Find operation.

I also don't usually add the initial index entries using the Index panel. I just use Ctrl+Alt+Shift+[ to add them directly in the text.

New suggestion and info: If you index a phrase, such as "picture perfect" and then add another index for "perfect", when you "find" the words, it will bypass all of the "picture perfect" phrases and will NOT index the second word ("perfect") of that phrase. I think the system should be able to find and index both words, however, a work-around is to index "perfect" before "picture perfect" then both the two-word phrase and the single word will be indexed. I keep running into this and having to fix the problem is much harder than using the workaround to begin with.

Thanks, Walt, for you workflow advice. I had to translate from Windows to Mac for the shortcut = Shift+Option+Command+[
