I'm in the document Index1, and this is the document how we left it with the index entries added.…What we need to do now is generate the index.…We are going to take a look at the different formatting options for the index and then also how we can update the index…when we inevitably find that there are certain things about the index that we have,…that we want to change or indeed should your pagination change.…So, first of all I'm going to come to my Index panel and using these icons down here we have this one…in the middle there Generate Index, so I can also choose that same option from the Index flyout panel.…
So when I do that much like with the Table of Contents feature, it auto-generates a file for me.…First of all, its going to give me a bunch of options to determine how it does that and also much like the Table…of Contents if you just work your way through, and they are all fairly logical these options…and we definitely want to see more options.…OK, so what is that index going to be called? I'm going to call it Index.…
