Can regularization automatically detect duplicates and replace unnecessary content without human int

When I am doing indexing (manually), it generates many identical entries,

At this point, it is required to leave only one name followed by multiple page numbers.

 

I wrote a regularization that needs to be selected from the entry name, then searched and replaced.

Only one duplicate item can be selected at a time. A large quantity can be troublesome.

Can it be automatically determined to replace the entire document at once.

 

How to improve.

Thank you very much~

 

 

My regularization:
(^ [A-z].+?) (\ d+$)

Replace with:
$2

Oh my god,I am so sorry.

that seems to be what I asked too.

I have been unable to log in to community.adobe.com for a long time to reply

I almost forgot that post.

These days, after a long struggle, I am able to get on again.

 

However, it seems that it was not resolved at the time.

Perhaps we can only request@brianp311 ,We should abandon that post and focus on this one.

Alignment may require manual labor. Just be able to automatically remove duplicates.

It looks as if the core of the problem is that you use the table-of-contents feature, not the index. If you want index-like output, mark up things with index markers.

Hi~Peter Kahrel.

We never use the indexing function, Indesign's indexing is very cumbersome and inefficient.

We usually use a table of contents to create indexes in conjunction with Excel.

It's true that InDesign's index is various limitations, but going the Excel+TOC route just makes things unnecessarily complicated. InDesign's index is very well scriptable, and you avoid the things that you keep running into.

 

Maybe you should reconsider what your problem with ID's index are and see if they can be addressed withs some scripts.
