I'm an unemployed former technical writer and professional editor for various publications. Now, I'm not familiar with the use of indexes in Word, but I'm also a believer that a good Table of Contents is superior to most indexes.
My thought is that using Adobe to create a file is the way to go. Do you not have any version of Acrobat that would allow you to modify content?
To me, PDF is the way to go, just as with the original manual.
Also, I'd be happy to contribute professional editing, and I have time depending on when your deadline is (and I could make more time and do it to any deadline if I could get a credit on the manual that I could then use to tell current prospective employers that this is what I'm doing right now - I'm unemployed, which is why I have a lot of time - so having a credit gives the appearance of having an official role, which would look better than just being unemployed).
Thanks for input!
I use MS WinWord 2007 just for work - the end result is PDF - thus it is the same as with original WitE manual...
I have original Adobe AcrobatPro X (and other previous variants) at work.
There is TOC and that is "jumpable" and OK - but I would like to have the "jumpable" index (and the end of document) as well...
