I am involved in a project that involves exporting to epub 20-30 books of about 500 pages each.
All these books have large and essential indexes that need to make it into the epub, preferably linked.
Is there any way to have Indesign, or a script, run through the index and rest of the file, in order to link the pages and page ranges to the proper pages in the book?
This would save our poor assistents (me, myself, and I) so much work, we're talking about at least a thousand index links per book. Medieval European monks would be envious of the work that awaits me, if I can't get this done automatically.
Thanks for your attention. I hope someone has a solution!
It can probably be done by scripting, though it would not be trivial. It would be helpful to view a sample book, or at least the index document and another desitnation page document. I assume a Hyperlink would suffice? For page ranges, Hyperlink could only send to the first page of the range. Feel free to PM.
Thanks, I will look into it. It looks promising!
Sadly, this entails creating a new index by an indexing program. I already have beautifully created indices that I'm very happy with.
I have now found a halfway solution in
It is definitely a half-way solution, but one that can be automated to some extent within Sigil, by using the Saved Searches functionality.
