Editors' Review


Index Generator creates a fully searchable index for any PDF file in a matter of seconds. It's an incredibly useful tool for researchers and has dozens of other potential applications. It even lets you do more with your file once you create it, adding some serious value.

This program can scan any PDF file to create a useful index, complete with page numbers, number of appearances, and all of the other details you'd need from an index. You can search the index alphabetically and tailor your results to include or exclude individual pages. You can also set words as references or sub-headings of other words so you can easily find a particular type of item -- like an author in a works cited page -- that much faster. You can also easily place any item into the Recycle Bin, and restore it just as easily. Index Generator is blisteringly fast, too; it took less than a minute to compile a complete index for several dozen pages, even with a heavily formatted PDF file. Once you have your index, you can export it to other formats, including DOC, PDF, and RTF. While you're in the program, you can format your index in multiple different ways and set numerous rules that make browsing easier.

Index Generator is a lifesaver for researchers, students, and anyone else who has to comb through pages of literature to pull out the stuff they need from it. It will trim hours off of your work as long as the document you need to use is in the PDF format. Since most documents can be found in that wildly popular format, there's little reason not to have this program around on your computer.

"Excellent, saved hours of manual indexing"

Sensible process once you get the hang of it.


None that I know of, but my book indexing needs were quite basic.

"Works ok for simple indexing"

It's free, easy to use and navigate, and doesn't take too much memory up


It lacks some basic indexing functions. For example, the software only recognises the PDF's page numbers so it cannot account for non-numbered pages (such as the book covers) or Roman numerals. It also needs an option to exclude pages across the whole project (such as bibliography) as it takes ages to go through each entry to remove the pages. If they added these options, it would be a great improvement.


Good for simple PDF document indexes but not really suitable for a professional book index
