Inside the Index Marker, the Marker Text can do some funky things like multiple entries (separate them by a semi-colon), or sub-entries (enter them in this format - Index_main_entry:sub-entry - just make sure that the "Index_main_entry" text is identical in each place where you use it; otherwise you get variations on the term appearing in your IX). Check out the FM help files for other cool features like "See xxx" or page ranges.

Thank you, Jeff.

done!

I failed to do that because I didn't keep the main entry identical.

Use a colon to separate levels. For example, where Bitmap image is a Level1IX and the rest are Level2IX:

VMware Fusionss_007.png

The markers would show:

Bitmap image:defined

Bitmap image:resolution of

Bitmap image:tonal range in

Remember that you have to have an exact match of the letters, including the case and spacing for this to work.

Dear BarbBinder,

I make it using your method. I follow the help before asking the question but failed. Now I found that 's because when I entering the main entry names I didn't keep them the same.

Thank you.
