Note the two possible definitions, and the pitfalls with each one. If you are still having trouble with specific {{cmd|index}} commands, try using the alternative definition. When they are used in the right context, these three possible ways of placing an index term (the plain {{cmd|index}}, or it wrapped in one of the two possible {{cmd|doflushatpar}}s, should solve any problem.

=Impact on hyphenation, and on line breaking as a consequence=

{{cmd|index}} is attached to a word, so it modifies the word boundaries. That influences its hyphenation and likely the paragraph's line breaking. To prevent that, you can write:

<texcode>
This is an indexed term\wordboundary\index{Term}. % instead of simply ... term\index{Term}.
</texcode>

That way, ConTeXt knows that the word "term" is ended by the "m" and not by something attached to it by {{cmd|index}}, and the effect on hyphenation and line breaking is the same as if we wrote:

<texcode>
This is an indexed term.
</texcode>
