The following options are available when you select Alphabetical Index as the index type.
Combine identical entries
Replaces identical index entries with a single entry that lists the page numbers where the entry occurs in the document. For example, the entries "View 10, View 43" are combined as "View 10, 43".
Combine identical entries with f or ff
Replaces identical index entries that occur on the directly following page(s), with a single entry that lists the first page number and a "f" or "ff". For example, the entries "View 10, View 11" are combined as "View 10f", and "View 10, View 11, View 12" as "View 10ff". Actual appearance depends on the locale setting, but can be overridden with Sort - Language.
Combine with -
Replaces identical index entries that occur on consecutive pages with a single entry and the page range where the entry occurs. For example, the entries "View 10, View 11, View 12" are combined as "View 10-12".
Distinguishes between uppercase and lowercase letters in identical index entries. For Asian languages special handling applies. If you want the first occurrence of the entry in the document to determine the case of the entry, select Combine identical entries.
To use multi-level collation to Asian languages, select Case sensitive. In the multi-level collation, the cases and diacritics of the entries are ignored and only the primitive forms of the entries are compared. If the forms are identical, the diacritics of the forms are compared. If the forms are still identical, the cases of the forms as well as the widths of the characters, and the differences in the Japanese Kana are compared.
Automatically capitalizes the first letter of an index entry.
Keys as separate entries
Inserts index keys as separate index entries. A key is inserted as a top level index entry and the entries that are assigned to the key as indented subentries.
To define an index key, choose Insert Index Entry dialog.
Automatically marks index entries using a concordance file - a list of words to include in an index.
Select, create, or edit a concordance file.
Sets the options for sorting the index entries.
Select the language rules to use for sorting the index entries.
Select numeric when you want to sort numbers by value, such as in 1, 2, 12. Select alphanumeric, when you want to sort the numbers by character code, such as in 1, 12, 2.
