I don't understand why that should be a problem. After having printed the document and created a PDF, he should be able to create an index again anytime without hassle, in case he wants to keep it in the document. After all, it takes less than a second to insert an index.phspaelti wrote:things like cutting and pasting the index. I would avoid doing that at all costs.

This is probably the best solution. The endnotes are set to be at the End of Document, and it doesn't matter how many sections the document has. After printing, one manually rearranges the page order of the endnotes and the index; and pages in a PDF can be easily moved around. So I think we can consider the OP's problem to be resolved.3. Another alternative […] is to put section breaks before and after the index, and then restart the page numbering for the relevant sections. In a pdf output you can probably also move the pages around to get the correct order.
I would like to hear from the original poster one last time:
 Is he able to profit from the provided solution(s)?
 Why does he use endnotes instead of footnotes? I suppose he's working on a book. Did the publisher demand endnotes?
Since the OP is new to Nisus, it might be worth mentioning that in Nisus one can switch from endnotes to footnotes with one mouse click.
