If it's in page number order, it isn't an index, it's a list. :-) Use a custom marker type. Then, instead of creating an IOM (index of markers), create an LOM (list of markers). When you first create it, the page numbers will be on the right. In the ref page LOM spec, change the relevant pgfs so that <$pagenum> is at the beginning. Sorry I can't be more specific -- I don't have FM running right now, and it's been a while since I made an LOM. Richard Richard G.
