These videos are intended to help introduce new indexers to some the more powerful features of SKY Index Professional and to some of the less well known features.
These short ads showcase the features of SKY Index Professional 8:
Often while indexing and working with Adobe Reader, I highlight text to indicate a typo or an assumption I made for the index. Usually I want to add a comment to the highlighted text and I always had to double click on the highlight to add a comment. But there is a setting to make a comment box pop up automatically: Click on Edit/Preferences/Commenting and tick ‘Automatically open comment pop-ups for comments other than notes’. A timesaver for sure.
I use PDFill PDF Tools free software quite a lot when indexing from PDF files (I don’t usually work from paper print-outs). I use the split function when the preliminary pages are numbered separately from the body of the text, and then causes the page number displayed at the top to not match the actual number of the page.

I’m so happy to hear that Kamm Schreiner’s Index Conversion Service can now convert indexes with zero, one, or two subheading levels.

I discovered a very simple but useful setting on Adobe Reader. Go to Edit/Preferences/Documents and tick ‘Restore last view settings when reopening documents’. Now, when I reopen a document it takes me to the last place I’ve been and displayed in the same size. Brilliant.
I made use of Sky Software’s Index Conversion Service recently. Kamm converted a 28 page index from a PDF format into Sky Software. It was a huge help – could not have finished the project in time without it. More info: http://sky-software.com/products/services.htm
