    Is there a way to create the final single index from multiple chapter files other than using Referenced Documents? I seem to remember someone said there was an alternative method?

    Jan Wright and I have written a guide to doing this with Referenced Documents. I just need to make a couple of edits and then it’ll be available.

    I’m interested to know reasons for wanting a different solution though Wendy.

    I’m not necessarily wanting a different solution – I’ve used RDs successfully in the past. But I thought Jan Wright had found an easier alternative, so I was interested. But perhaps I misunderstood.

    I’m about to embark on a commission where the publisher wants separate chapter files, so I wanted to check I knew all the options.

    I will send you a copy of our guidelines on Monday if you would like. Unfortunately I’m away until then and not sure if I can do so remotely. I think we’ve managed to make it an easy solution.

    Thanks, Jan. I would be interested to see your guidelines.
