Index Columns (MS Word 97)
I just set up an individual Index File that I can use to generate an Index after I finish writing a book.
I am using RD Fields and setting up each chapter in its own file.
I created the Index File and setup the styles..etc..
I marked several Index entries in one of the chapter files to test it.
Here's the Question:
I want to have Group Separators in the Index and also
2 columns per page like the follwoing:
I tryed 2 ways to generate the Index:
Method 1 In the Index File I went to Insert Index and Tables - chose Classic Format because it has Group Separators - and 2 columns
The Index generated but all the fonts, indents etc. were different than my Style Settings - It seems if you use the Classic Format it has its own default settings.
So after the Index is generated I have to Reformat the fonts and indents for the whole Index - so that method failed.
Method 2 - Instead of Classic - I chose Insert Field All
Index - using the h "A" switch - the result:
The Group Separators, Fonts, indents all came out perfect -but now the Index is only 1 Column per page - I need 2 Columns per Page. - How Do I format the Index to be 2 Columns per Page? You Should use Styles for all your Formatting and avoid Direct Formatting when possible.
Do I need to create a Column Style and then make it an AutoText List Entry or just Direct Formatting?
What's the procedure?
