Working with Indesign Creative Cloud 2017, I've run into an issue. I was delivered files and the supplied IDML file has about 150 Index entries that I need to relink in the content. When I export the content to HTML, I see what appears as
_idIndexMarker and on a particular page set where it appears the index was linked still shows the linking portion from Story Editor:
export results in HTML:
Looking at how an index works I ran across Create an index but I wasn't able to find anything on the re-linking process.
Researching for a relink solution I came across "Work with markers" which discusses how to show them, I already know that and there is no information on the re-linking process.
I looked into examining if there were any other panels, which led to the
Cross-references Panel but the documentation I found, Cross-references doesn't help.
If I search for InDesign re-link index I ran across Indesign CS5 relink all links when moving to a different computer so I tried
File -> Package but I received the same results.
When I search the tag [tag:indesign] index I don't see any questions asked regarding re-linking.
When I look into a possible scripting solution it appears it's mostly read-only but that is for CS6 and I'm using CC17 as there is no mention of any index changes in What’s New with InDesign CC 2017
How can I re-link an Indesign document's index entries without having to re-create them? Is there a way I can isolate this in the backend so I could make a script out of it?
