You're right, they were done with Macrex.
My company did some work with a contract indexer who did some of the
indexes for Frame, and we went to some effort to convert Macrex
file output to Frame index entries for our books.

The irony *is* worth noting. Even more astounding was the way
Frame published the manuals for Version 3. The new features
were sequestered into a separate book, and weren't even
mentioned in the "User's Guide." Sorta made you want to
recommend that they find some modern publishing software.

Frame drives me crazy, but I still recommend it.
As Winston Churchill said about democracy, "It's the worst
system, except for all the others."
