Not sure about this one, and would love to see replies
from the list on this question.

No, you don't get a list of previously created index entries, which is
unfortunate. Frame has a nice indexing capability, but that's not one of
its features (yet...). Feature request? Let Adobe decide <g>.

You can try IXgen from frank Stearns Associates. They have a web page,
but I don't have the URL in front of me. Try a search, or ask me -- I know
it's here somewhere ...

My own practice is to put in a bunch of index markers, generate the index,
then keep the index open as a reference as I continue adding markers. I
it every so often to keep the reference list current. Works pretty well, for

work-around. I think most Frame indexers do something similar.
