On https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/help-with-indexing/ I read "When searching for occurrences of the selected text, InDesign considers only whole words, and searches are case-sensitive. For example, if cheetah is selected, cheetahs and Cheetah will not be indexed."
For the Index I am trying to build I need to find a way to index the words Cheetah, cheetah, Cheetahs and cheetahs on one reference only – cheetah –, so that when consulting this reference – cheetah – readers can find the numbers of the pages in which the four words – Cheetah, cheetah, Cheetahs and cheetahs – occur.
Is there any simple way to do this?
I am working with InDesign 16.2.1
Thank you very much for your help,
Thank you very much, Eugene,
It looks very promissing.
I will run some tests – I never used scripts before – and I will get back to you later.
Replace by: cheetah
… But only if you have this Script:
What does this Script do with the regex mentionel above: it absolutely doesn't replace the 4 cases indicated by "cheetah"! it simply creates for each found a "cheetah" index entry! E.g., if it finds the word "Cheetahs", it creates an index entry "cheetah"!
Of course, just 1 click! 😉

Thank you so much for your help, I really appreciate your attention.
I am sorry it took me so long to get back to you.
I have two questions:
a) I can't listen to the sound of the video you posted, am I doing something wrong?
b) How can I get the script you mentioned?
Thank you in advance,
No sound and not free! …
PM me if you want to know more!
