indexing

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on June 23, 2005 02:54 PM
OO might offer more layout options, but

- in Word you create index entries in 1/3 of the time; no complicated dialogs, you just enter the index text as hidden text

- you can do find&replace operations which change *both* main text and index entries

who ever has indexed whole books with both Word and OO (I did) knows that OO interface to index entries is way too complicated

btw, I am a big fan of OO, Open Source and Linux
