Hi Darren, Instead of a list of paragraphs, you could use FrameScript to insert a custom marker in each of these paragraphs. The custom marker would have the paragraph's text, but it would have the sort string in square brackets without the period. The script could be run on the entire book, making it virtually automatic; or it could run automatically whenever you update the book and generate the index.
