Congratulations on the launch of Publisher. It looks great, and I am excited to get to learn it.

I presently use InDesign, and one feature I found very helpful was a plugin script called index-direct.jsx. By using this script, you could have a full list of the index topics in a separate document, and the script would go through the list and form an index for your main document. A thousand entries were completed in a matter of seconds. I am hoping that Affinity or a script writer will be able to provide a similar piece of software. Cheers.

This would also be a game changer for us -- we currently use the horrendously expensive Sonic Bookends for inDesign. A simple way to build an index from an existing file of index terms.

I see in the forum a discussion of using 'concordance' files but I can't find any obvious references to this in the app's help section, so I'm not sure if it's possible or not. This would be a great addition either as a script or a feature and mean we can finally ditch inDesign (!).
