I write non fiction and was looking for suggestions on how best to create a Table of Contents and an Index for my writings.

I am also interested to designate some words that are to be gathered in a table of index at the end of the document.
Word is doing this.

Word can do it but I think this is something that will have to be done when the text is ready and is leaving Scrivener for advanced post-processing, possibly using Word.

This was discussed two years ago and I think most of it is still true:

How to make a ToC is explained in the manual.
I am a user, writing non-fiction and science, using:
* Mac Scrivener 3 on a Macbook 12”, MacBook Pro 13”, and iMac 27”, running different OS.
* iOS Scrivener 1 on an iPhone 11 Pro, iPad Air 9.7”, and iPad Pro 12.9”, all running the latest iOS
