I've already responded to Kevin, and we have a solution that works.
When inserting an index marker for Kevin's "tutorial" passages, you need to append the marker text with <Emphasis> . This would be the only difference between the regular (or standard) reference and the tutorial references. For example, using the index entries from Kevin's initial email, the text of the index marker for the "creating new distribution rules" tutorial would be: Distribution Rules:creating new distribution rules <Emphasis> I tested this in my own doc by trying to create index entries for a report description. The first index marker was placed where the description started. Then I inserted the "<Emphasis>" marker where a sample screenshot occurred. The resulting Index entry looked like this: sales return detail lookup 36, *37* (Yes, the "37" is italicized, but the "36" is not). -- Brian -------------------- From: Kevin Hunter < kev...@excelsystems.com> Date: May 5, 2007 2:03 PM Subject: More Elegant Indexing Solution To: " framers at lists.frameusers.com" <framers at lists.frameusers.com> Hi everyone, I have a series of user guides where the first few chapters typically include a tutorial, and the rest of the guide includes reference information (like for each option on each screen, that type of thing). So the first section and the last part may have overlapping topics, where in the first section it's more of a how-to approach, and in the last, it just tells you what it does. What I want to do is reflect this elegantly in the index, perhaps by having one type of reference in italics, and the standard references (to the reference section of the guide) in normal type. Currently I have a bit of a cumbersome approach, where in the actual index entries I just put the word (tutorial) into the ref. So what I want is tha instead of having this type of thing: Distribution Rules creating new distribution rules, 345 creating new distribution rules (tutorial), 47 to have something like Distribution Rules creating new distribution rules, 47, 345 (where the 47 is in italics, not sure if that'll come through when I send this email). Then, in my How to Use this Guide section, I'd just have to say once that the italics indicate references to the tutorial sections. thanks! Kevin Kevin Hunter ExcelSystems Software Development, Inc.
