"Since early 2009 I have used TExtract for more or less all projects [..] I have used TExtract for more than 204 books. [..] In terms of indexes, this underestimates the total, as about 1 in every 2 of my "projects" involves creating a normal index plus 2 specialised indexes [..]. On this basis, I have compiled 400+ "indexes" using TExtract." (Professional indexer, Crewe, UK, 2013) "Thanks for the continuing improvements to embedding. These are particularly welcome, and it is noticeable that I am getting an increasing number of commissions entailing Word embedding. A lot of other indexers avoid this like the plague, as manual embedding is a massive pain in the neck [..]. With TExtract I am now getting to the point where embedded indexing is only slightly more complex than ordinary indexing." (Same user, 2014) "I am continuing to use TExtract intensively. An increasing amount of the work I do is on embedded indexes in Word for CUP and I have the impression that they continue to have difficulty in finding indexers who can produce reliable embedded indexes. There are other tools out there to do the job, but all of them in my view are rather “cobbled together”."  (Same user, 2017)

"Senior Guidance Directory & Caregiving Handbook assists seniors and caregivers in solving the problems they face. Thus, it is imperative that all aspects of the directory be user friendly. TExtract gave us the ability to create an index that was not only user-friendly but as in-depth as we needed. We used InDesign's index (the software the directory is created with) last year; it was much too difficult to create. TExtract was a breeze to use. Customer support was excellent." [Next year, edition 2009:] "Well, the directory is at the printers, and once more, the index is incredible. Thank you for all your help. This software is truly amazing.
