Chapter 90. Building an Index > Indexing Topics

Indexing Topics

Some folks start indexing with a list of topics (or entries) they want to use in an index. For example, if you are writing about animals, you might want to predefine topics (categories) for Felines and Canines, even before starting the indexing process. To create a list of topics, open the Index palette from the Window menu and click the Topic button located along the top of the palette (see Figure 90-1). Then select the New Topic command from the flyout menu or click the New icon at the bottom of the palette. Later, you can attach specific entries, called references, in your document to the topics you have added. Note that creating a list of topics is optional.

Figure 90-1. The Topic option in the Index palette lets you predefine index topics prior to adding references.
