Hi Rajib,

Scribus is a frame-based layout program. So you create pages, then on those pages place your text inside text frames. For the main body of your book, you would presumably have a series of pages with the frames linked from one page to the next, and your text imported from a file. You could then add one or more pages to the end with text frames into which you load your index list from a file.
There aren't built-in shortcuts to this process.
