You could select the list, turn the text into a table, then sort it.

 Hi, 
 I'd like to join this email about making a list of figures in alpha order. 
  
 I followed the directions below and all I got was a blank FMKR page.
 Then I went to just make a list of figures as a stand alone file, not part of 
 the book file.
 That worked great, I got the list.  
 1. Now, how do I alphabatize them.  
 2. Isn't there a simple sort feature like Word?  Seems like then I could make 
 the sorted list as a template and work thru the entire book. 
 3.  Is their an easier way to work within the complete book file to get a 
 full list of figures at one time? 
 4.  Also, make a list of tables. 
  
 I want to use this same technique to make a list of the titles from my TOC, 
 and arrange them  either by WI number or alpha to create a quick hyperlink 
 file for users easy reference. 
  
 Using FM7.0, Adobe Distiller 5.0, Vista Enterprise.

 Sure.  From the Special menu, generate a List of - References (or
 an Index of - References, if you prefer them alphabetical), and
 select Imported Graphics as what to include.

RE: Exporting the paths of graphics used

2009-05-20 Thread Reng, Dr. Winfried
Hi Susan,

Be careful when sorting a table. All hypertext markers
get deleted. When you to use the sorted list as a
hyperlink file this procedure is not a good idea.

I guess, an alphabetical list of paragraphs is best (as
Richard Combs already suggested).

You can add such a file for a single file (Special | List
of | xxx) or for the whole book (Add | List of | xxx).
If you add such a generated file for the book, you must
update the book to actually generate the list.
In the online help it's described how the list can be
formatted (Formatting lists and indexes). This will
always take effect after you have updated the book.

Best regards

Winfried

You must have used the List of menu item instead of the Index of one
that Jeremy suggested. The index one should generate an alphabetical
list.
