        I hope this is the correct forum for this question.

        I print out each newsletter because there is lots of good information.  Then  I write notes in the margin.  Now i have 4 binders full of newsletters.  When I want to find information I have to page through hundreds of pages .  This is a time waster.

        I am wondering if there is an index to the newsletters.  I have searched the messages for an index and found many discussions about indexes for other things but not for the newsletter.

        “Now I have 4 binders full of newsletters.”
        Hi Cellsee6. If instead of 4 binders of paper you had appended each Newsletter to a single MSWord document, you could use my one-click indexer. That would do what you want – provide an index of every important word in all the newsletters. You can download a free copy http://www.chrisgreaves.com/Downloads/Indxr_FREE.zip.
        That version is from 2018. I have a later version in use, but not released.
        Cheers
        Chris

        Unless you're in a hurry, just wait.

        Re an ‘Index’ – you could check out the Newsletter/Alerts – Yearly Archives
        Chose a ‘Year’, select an edition and look at the In this issue section to see what is in that particular issue.

        I print out each newsletter. . . . .

        For future use, maybe try to save a few trees and save your newsletters as PDFs or Print the pages as PDFs.
        Some PDF readers/viewers allow you to add Comments or Notes etc. These can be placed anywhere you want in the PDF including the side margins. I favour the Notes as these can be created and minimised to a small yellow icon. To read a Note, just d/click the icon to reveal your note/comment and d/click again to close.
        Saving the changes will preserve the ‘Notes/comments’ and should show them in other PDF readers/viewers.
        Give Foxit PDF Reader a try, my example below used Foxit Reader Portable. Many modern readers/viewers have similar options to use.

        You could use the “Search Newsletters” option up on the right. That should give you a start.

        cheers, Paul
