Creating Indexes

Take a look at the index at the back of this book and ask yourself, “Would I want to create one of these by hand?” Probably not, unless you’re a wonderfully patient individual who can tolerate a very tedious task. I’m not, so I use WordPerfect’s Index feature to help me create indexes for my lengthy documents.

Some say a good index can make or break a reference book. I hope the index for this book has already saved you some time (and frustration). The key to a good index is anticipating the needs of the reader. You need to try to think of all the ways a reader might try to look something up and then point them in the right direction.
