Creating an alphabetic index quickly
Now that there are index entries, you can create the index.
Although indexes can be customized extensively in Writer, most of the time you will need to make only a few choices. To create an index quickly:
- Place the cursor where you want to add the index and click Insert > Indexes and Tables > Indexes and Tables.
- In the Type box on the Index/Table page of the Insert Index/Table dialog box, select Alphabetical Index.
- In the Options section, you may want to uncheck the Case sensitive checkbox.
- Click OK.
If you add, delete, or change the text of index entries, you need to update the index. Writer does not update an index automatically. To do this, follow the steps outlined in
Updating a table of contents.
