Ma Plumps,

One of the things I did to my own conlang's dictionary recently is add bookmarks to match with the different letter sections. That way standard PDF viewers' own TOC tools will let you jump closer to where you want to be. I believe you're already using hyperref, so the command is already there for you:

Code: [Select]
\pdfbookmark[level][toc entry text][label]

For my own language, the line for the N's looks like \pdfbookmark[2][N][n-lexicon], and sits right above the latex that formats the heading. You'd probably use level 0.

For my own language...

Oh, that is nice! Looks interesting. I didn't know about your own conlang.

That is a great idea. Thanks ma William. I will tackle that once I’m fit enough to sit in front of a computer screen again. ;)

An idea for a usage example for sunu. None of the current examples establish that person can sivunu. Since Na'vi is sometimes sensitive to vocab that can be used of people, it seems worth a note. Example from this 2016 blog post: frapor a ke sunu por zoplo si.

The Pandorapedia reference under täftxuyu has a broken link.  It has http://www.pandorapedia.com/navi/music/ritual_music but it should be https://www.pandorapedia.com/navi/music/ritual_music.html

Added.

Fixed.

Thank you so much! It will be included in the next release.
