oops. I meant to say that I am *NOT* questioning the rationale.

Hi Martin,

I understand the need and certainly want to make sure that your needs are met. I am questioning the rationale.

Rather, I am just trying to understand how it works. Specifically:

 1. How does simply clicking before a word or phrase rather than
    selecting it give the result you want? What is the difference in
    what is produced?
 2. Does LibreOffice still grab neighboring words rather than the
    specific word or phrase we write in the Insert Index Entry dialog?
    It sounds like a bug that should be addressed at some point. It
    also does not sound like a difficult issue to fix. If it has not
    been addressed, has a bug report been filed?

Thank you.

what Milos is asking for is important for all languges with inflection etc.

Whereas in English it will always be a "document", in those other languages the translated text will show different inflected word forms, and those are not appropriate for automatic index creation (because index will not contain a single entry but several different entries for the same term, which kind of makes index useless).

Probably embedded means index entries that have a different index value (basic dictionary word form) than the in-text shown value (inflicted, plural, etc. ).

So even if this work seems redundant for English, it is necessary for other languages (Slavic languages, German etc.) to enable a usable index in the translared guides.
