> Hi All,
> Thank you all for your help with the alpha sort. Now, I have an alphabetized 
> list of my Work Instructions (WI) in an appendix, that's great. 
> However, how do I make a separation with A, B, C and so on to break up this 
> long list and make it a bit more user friendly? 
> I have entered A, B, C with and without tags, but when I generate the book, 
> it naturally sorts these letters and they all jump to the top of the page. I 
> realize that's because that would be the alphabetical order - so what is the 
> magic key to make these introductory letters stay in place? Does it have 
> anything to do with using the ignore symbols function? However, these are not 
> "symbols" but the introductory letters to a new section that I want to hold 
> in place.

> A
> Add a File

> B
> Build a Book

> C
> Complete the Manual

> It turns out like this:
> A
> B
> C

> Add a File
> Build a Book
