Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating index cross-references, part of Creating Long Documents with InDesign.
While most index entries will just include specific page references, you…sometimes need to create ones that refer to other entries.…We call these cross-referenced index entries, and there are two kinds:…one kind has no page numbers at all and just refers to another entry with the…word See and a second kind includes page numbers and includes a cross-reference…with the words See also.…We will see how to create each of these.…First, we will do a See also.…Now, what I want to do is create a cross-reference to this cheese here,…Caciocavallo on page 12, and I want the cross-reference to be from the text horse cheese.…
So I'll double-click to select horse cheese.…I'll press Command+7 or Ctrl+7 on the PC to bring up the New Page Reference…dialog box. And under Type, instead of Current Page, I will choose See…also and click OK.…Now, if I scroll down to H and look under horse cheese, there's no page reference.…It just says See also Caciocavallo.…But now I need to add the page number for horse cheese.…So again, I'll press Command+7 or Ctrl+7 and choose Current Page and say OK.…
