    Hi Roy,

    Thanks for the information, I'll change the visibility of the page. Creating an index with the Scroll EPUB Exporter is currently not possible, the page should not be visible in the documentation.

    We already tracked the functionality to have an index page in our JIRA system: https://k15t.jira.com/browse/EXP-315
    Please watch and / or vote the issue.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    Cheers,
    Nils

    Wow - that's disappointing. Especially since it is listed as one of the 4 major features of the product: http://www.k15t.com/display/EPUB/Index+Support

    It seems like the documentation should mention this limitation outright and not suggest that indexing is possible by means of labels or with the  {Index-term}-macro as it implies in this section: http://www.k15t.com/display/EPUB/Indexing+Terms. Fortunately, we have not wasted a lot of time adding that macro to pages, but we were on the brink of it. So it is good to know we would be wasting our time. 

    BTW - Shouldn't the Jira issue be listed as a defect rather than an improvement since the product is advertised to have this feature? I would think this would be getting the highest priority to get addressed or you should remove the it from the feature list and stop all references to it in the documentation.

     

    I will make that comment in Jira and vote on it.

     

    Thanks.

    Hi Roy,

    I've deleted the corresponding pages in our EPUB documentation.

    Sorry again for the confusion. I'll talk to our developers about the mentioned JIRA issue again.

    Cheers,
    Nils

    Probably the best move until EXP-315 is dealt with. Having an index is a great feature, so I hope it gets on the product roadmap soon.

     

    Thanks.
