NOTE: If you need to automatically embed entries from a dedicated indexing program such as SKY Index, CINDEX, or MACREX, you need DEXembed. DEXter, on the other hand, is now designed exclusively for indexing directly in Microsoft Word and is analogous to IXgen for FrameMaker. DEXembed (along with the new version of DEXter) is a free upgrade for those who have already purchased the original ($199.95) DEXter.

Tired of indexing the hard way? Tired of messing with XE entries and bookmarks? Need to do embedded indexing without muss or fuss? You need DEXter! DEXter is a Microsoft Word add-in that makes indexing in Word a snap.

If you’ve tried to do much indexing using Microsoft Word’s built-in indexing feature, you know how cumbersome and inefficient it is. Its drawbacks are legion, but one of the worst is its inability to let indexers see and edit more than one entry at a time. In Word, indexers must work “in the dark,” lacking a comprehensive list of entries for reference.

Dedicated indexing programs, such as Cindex, Macrex, and SKY Index, overcome this limitation but have one of their own—the inability to easily embed index entries into the text of an electronic document.

DEXter bridges the gap, overcoming the limitations of dedicated indexing programs and of Word's indexing features:

Sorry, but Word 2008 doesn't support macros or add-in programs. If you have a Macintosh and really need the most recent version of Word, you might consider running Windows and Word 2007 under Parallels Desktop.

After downloading the program file, open it and drag the individual files it contains out to your computer desktop. Then open and read the Instructions file.
