PDF Index Generator is a powerful indexing utility for generating an index from your book and writing it to your book in (4) easy steps. PDF Index Generator parses your book, collects the index words and their location in the book, then writes the generated index to a PDF or a text file you specify. The main target for PDF Index Generator is to automate the process of generating the book index instead of doing the hard work manually.
What's new in version 3.0
The program windows edition has a new look, as part of the plan for a new UI modern design.
Ability to specify the font of the index paginator & the paginator margins to be used in the index.
Added a Couple of filters to Step 3:
Bulk Find filter: Used to find multiple terms in the results table all at once.
By duplicated words filter: Used to show only the duplicated terms in the results table.
By plural words filter: Used to show only the singular/plural terms in the results table.
The program can now handle reveresed (Bidirectional) cross references (If a topic A relates to topic B so it references it, then automatically let B also reference A).
The Include/Exclude pages dialog in Step 1 now shows the real page numbers of your book instead of always showing Arabic numbers, like Adobe reader does.
The program interface can now appear in French, German, or Italian languages.
Ability to specify decimal font sizes for the index terms instead of non-decimal values.
When defining the index letters for the index, you can specify now multi letters for languages that have multi letters in its Alphabet, like dd, ff, ng, etc. for the Welsh language.
The editing phase in Step 3 is now performing much faster as we've deleted the unnecessary memory variables that were causing memory leak issues.
The program now reviews & tests any added include query before saving it to correct any issues with its syntax.
We have created a 32-bit edition of the program for Windows 32-bit systems.
Many Mac UI problems were handled:
Step 1 suggest field was appearing with gray background color.
Advanced page numbers table rows are not aligned right.
Step 3 search bar outer border flickers.
Step 3 find text field appears with blue background color.
Disable all non-Mac OS X user friendly themes for the program.
The color chooser button is now more user friendly and modern.
Upgraded the Mac theme to work fine with Java 9.
Much more user friendly suggest field in Step 1 for Windows / Mac / Linux.
Merge duplicates dialog: We've added a "Filter" button to show all or some of the duplicated words in Step 3 table instead of merging them automatically.
Merge plurals dialog: We've added a "Filter" button to show all or some of the singular/plural words in Step 3 table instead of merging them automatically.
Step 3: When modifying some rows the program no more scrolls to the 1st row of the table.
We've increased the number of allowed redo/undo processes in Step 3 from 3 to 10.
Many issues concerning the Auto-Merge include terms were fixed, and now they perform much better.
Fixed the sample field for Cross Referrences for the "See", "See also" prefixes.
Upgraded the program to use Java 9 instead of Java 8.
Fixed a number of internal problems.
