Viewing and editing existing index entries

Once you have added the initial entries, you can make some amendments or add some new ones. You can view and edit these using the following steps:

  1. Ensure that field shading is active (Tools > Options >> Appearance > Text Document > Field shadings), so you can locate index entries more easily.
  2. Place the cursor immediately to the left of an existing index entry in the body of your document and select Edit > Index Entry. Alternatively, right-click on the word or phrase and from the context menu select Index Entry.
  3. A dialog box similar to the one below appears. You can move through the various index entries using the forward and back arrow buttons. If there is more than one entry for a single word or phrase, then you can scroll through each of the entries.
  4. Make the necessary modifications or additions to the index entries and, when finished, click OK.
