I've nearly completed a nonfiction book with Scrivener. Is it possible to create an index?

I've had a look through the manual and my instinct is to say "No".

However, if you're compiling either to PDF or ebook format, this doesn't matter, as a search in those type of documents is as good as an index.

If you're compiling to a print book, then you will need to compile it to Word format and create your index there.

Not directly in Scrivener. There's a discussion about this topic here.
