Chapter 18. Books > To revise a list:

To revise a list:

1.
Open the document and open the Lists palette (Ctrl-F11).

2.
Choose a List Name.

3.
For a non-book file, double-click an entry—that text will highlight in the document window . If you double-click an entry from a chapter file, the chapter file will open, but the correct text will not be highlighted.

4.
Make any modifications to the text in the document. To prevent text from appearing on the list, for example, apply a style sheet to it that is not being used in the list.

5.
Click Update on the Lists palette to update the list preview.

6.
If you're going to rebuild the list in the same document, click in the text box that contains the list. If you're going to insert the re-built list and leave the old list unchanged, click exactly where you want the new one to appear. If the list is in a separate chapter of a book, open that chapter now.

7.
Click Build.

8.
Click Replace to replace the current list with the new list . You can't undo this.

or

Click Insert to build a new list and leave the old list unchanged . You can't undo this either.

Tip

You can reformat a built list or apply different style sheets to it, but such changes will be lost if you rebuild the list using the Replace option.
