You don't need Enhance to fix a broken glossary.

With FrameMaker, you can convert the entire glossary to a table (terms in one
column and defs in the other).
Then sort on column one.
All other fixes are just searching for specifics (cross references, the words "see
also", etc.)

I haven't used Enhance, so I have no reason to doubt that it is a wonderful tool.
On the other hand, I find that many writers do not stretch Frame to its fullest
Why buy two tools, when one suffices.
