Could you put the index in a separate file, all its own? Then paginate the chapter before it to "delete empty pages" and paginate the index to use "next available page." Then proceed with the remaining pagination as you normall would for this book.

Rick Hi Framers, I run into this problem regularly (on FrameMaker 7.1): I have a book consisting of quite a number of documents. Some of these documents have an index of their own (for historical reasons... And because making a book-wide index wouldn't make any sense). The text flow in each document is single-column, right/left, with room for sideheads. Now when I generate an index, I import it into the document (just like a TOC). But naturally I want the index to be two-column... As far as I can see, there is no way of doing this. I can apply a master page on the index heading, but that only covers the page on which the heading is situated, not the subsequent pages. I made a script which can reformat the text frame from a certain point onwards, but since the document is part of a book, adding or deleting pages elsewhere in the book will shift the whole thing - in short, it's a nightmare to maintain! Anybody got an idea? -Niels _______________________________________________ _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to Framers as ppresley at sbcglobal.net.
