I have subscribed to your excellent magazine since day 1 and have all the issues published. The index provided every 12 issues is very useful but now we are approaching 5 years of articles it would be very useful to have these indexes available for download in Excel spreadsheet format so that they could be combined for easier searches, manipulation etc. Even better if an index covering the 5 yrs already combined was available. Keep up the good work.

Hi Alan, It looks like there was no response to your request, which month does the index come in

*** Excel is a very, very unlikely choice for a magazine to use - An open spreadsheet isn't exactly a universally usable document. A PDF would be more widely appreciated, has a greater comfort level for a magazine and is just as searchable.

But the last ones were done as word dokuments so they are not much more universal.

A searchable index would be very useful, especially for those of us who subscribe using the electronic editions, it is hard to keep all the mags and bookmarks on 1 iPad.
A fantastic app would be 1 that stores all your mag's bookmarks &/or let's you "print" 9to pdf) your bookmarked pages. Just wishing.

The MS Word documents I have are all searchable for any word.

Any application now like Ms or Open/Libre Office or PDF's being the man types of files that most of us either use or familiar with, are searchable.
