Hi folks!  Can anyone advise me ... I am indexing a new book and was hoping to avoid having to index words twice if they occur both with capitalisation and without, but I can't seem to find a way of doing this. Maybe there isn't?!  It seems odd that InDesign wouldn't have this option, requiring you to spend hours, post-indexing, combining the entries.  Thanks in advance! 🙂

Alas, there isn't.

 

InDesign differentiates between lower- and upper-case characters like a password, rather than like web addresses where it would not. I'm afraid you're looking at two different entries for two different words.

 

I know this wasn't the answer you were looking for, but it is an honest answer.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Randy
