The TExtract software package for book indexing ( received a generally negative review in The Indexer in 2005 (Vol. 24 No. 4, pp. 250–1). Since that time, however, the program has evolved considerably and is used by a number of professional indexers, some of whom probably prefer to keep their heads 'below the parapet' in the controversy on automated indexing. This article attempts to explain how the present version of the software (8.202) can be (and is) used as a labour-saving aid (and therefore also an aid to maximizing income) by a professional indexer.

Its extensive reviews section covers both printed and electronic material, including websites and hardware and software of interest to the indexer, while 'Indexes Reviewed' highlights some of the best (and worst) examples of indexing in action. And, in 'Around the World', it keeps readers up to date with what is going on across the international indexing community. First published in 1958 on a twice-yearly basis, it moved in 2008 to a quarterly publication.
