Index Author could be one of the fastest way of creating an index of text, files or keywords in the Windows operating system. The portable software program supports all three options and comes with enough advanced features to make this an interesting option even for large textual information. A text index is an index of a single text that has been copied and pasted into the application. The user can alternatively point the app to a supported document on the local computer system. File indexes are indexes of multiple text files whereas keyword indexes index specific keywords of selected files.
The above screenshots shows a file index created by the program. Index Author analyses the text or files to find the most important words. It will then create an index of these words which can be saved as text, an index (idx) file or copied to the clipboard. It is furthermore possible to copy html code of the index to create a html file on the local computer system.
Several options are available that modify the output of the program. It is for example possible to use filters to exclude lower or upper case words, html tags, to define a minimum word length or use a whitelist and blacklist for the index.
The design of the index can be changed between html and text in the options. Index Author is an interesting program for users who want to create indexes of files or text. It is compatible with the Windows operating system and can be downloaded from the developer's website.
