I created an index entry in Chapter 10 of my FrameMaker book and I have no idea how to look it up.

Highlighting the entry in the index itself (pic related): Capture.PNG

Shows me this in the Marker Pod: Capture2.PNG

How can I find the word that I accidentally created a "le" index entry for??

Thanks in advance.

Markers on top of each other can be impossible to distinguish or individually select, without inserting some wide temporary spacing characters to push them apart. This stacking commonly happens when a heading or caption is used for two or more of: TOC, IX, Xref.

So, in FM, go to the offending source page, and click at the top left of the main text frame. Open the Special > Marker dialog. Do an Edit > Find/Change by Marker of Type: Index, and [Find]. As each is found, its Marker Text will appear i

If you ctrl-click on the entry in the Index chapter, it should take you directly to the marker on page 115.

Ctrl+Click in the PDF takes me to the page, but does not highlight the word. I actually have tried highlighting every word on the page to see if it pops up in the Marker pod but no cigar.

Does the Marker text: "openObjectId 10.0 Optimization.fm:1 935633" reveal anything? specifically the numbers at the end?

Leave your marker window open. The hypertext jump will place the cursor on the inserted index marker, NOT the word. It will also be beneficial, if you turn on your Text Symbols so that you can see the markers.

Dear Nithya,

You do not delete in index entries in the generated index - as shown in the screen shot. You create and also delete the markers in the source document. To find this location;

In the generated index, have the cursor on the desired entry

  • Hold ALT + CTRLwhile you hover the mouse over the desired entry - the cursor will change to a hand
  • Click with ALT + CTRL still held
  • The target document will be opened and you are at the location of the marker.
  • To delete it, press DEL

In my humble opinion you are missing basic knowledge about FM functions. It would be desirable to book a course at Barb's institution...

I'd also suggest picking up a copy of Matt R. Sullivan's FM book.
