thumbs – Create thumb indexes

The pack­age puts run­ning, cus­tomiz­able thumb marks in the outer mar­gin, mov­ing down­ward as the chap­ter num­ber (or what­ever shall be marked by the thumb marks) in­creases. Ad­di­tion­ally an overview page/ta­ble of thumb marks can be added au­to­mat­i­cally, which gives the names of the thumbed ob­jects, the page where the ob­ject/thumb mark first ap­pears, and the thumb mark it­self at its cor­rect po­si­tion. The thumb marks are use­ful for large doc­u­ments (such as ref­er­ence guides, an­tholo­gies, etc.), where a quick and easy way to find (for ex­am­ple) a chap­ter is needed.
