Bosschieter, Pierke: The Indexer, Volume 34, Number 3, September 2016, pp. 119-121(3), Index-Manager reviewed:

Pierke Bosschieter has been putting a German embedded indexing program, Index-Manager, through its paces. She is impressed with the results.

Franz, Susanne: Wissenschaftliches Arbeiten mit Word 2013. Vierfarben Verlag.

In einem eigenen Kapitel “Wissenschaftliche Register mit dem Index-Manager” erklärt Frau Franz die wichtigsten Funktionen des Index-Managers wie Importieren, Einträge erstellen, Register systematisch erfassen, einzelne Einträge bearbeiten, das Register bearbeiten und Querverweise anlegen.

Wenn Word auch für das Erstellen eines Registers sicherlich ausreichende Grundfunktionen bereitstellt, so werden Sie spätestens beim Bearbeiten eines umfangreichen Registers merken, dass Sie oft sehr umständlich vorgehen müssen…

Index-Manager has been in use for over four years. We are delighted by exceptionally positive response from our customers.


Schade, dass nicht schon viel früher jemand auf diese Idee gekommen ist.

Lektorin, Sachbuchverlag

Ohne Index-Manager kann ich mir meine Arbeit nicht mehr vorstellen.

This is all in all a very promising piece of software, with a multitude of possibilities for compiling embedded indexes. As the developer is perfectly willing to make changes to the software, it could become almost perfect.
