    Index (Word 2003)

    Hello,

    I am get a whole bunch of different font formatting in my index. Some of the entries are bold, some are italic, etc. I know that one of the ways of getting around this would be to go into each index entry individually, select each one, and press cntrl + spacebar. But is there a shortcut to this? I want everything non-bold and non-italics. I know, for example, in the Table of Authorities dialog box, you can untick "keep original formatting" and you solve the problem in one step. Is there such a shortcut with indexes?

    Also, while I am making the index, can I somehow turn off Word's auto-record function, where Word records the formatting of each entry and includes it in each index field? I turned off "automatically update" in the index dialog box, for what it's worth.

    Sincerely,

    JMT

    What happens if you select the entire index and press Ctrl+space?

    That works, but is there no more direct way? I'd like to be able to skip that step if I could . . .

    Not as far as I know. Index entries always inherit the direct formatting of the marked text.
