Hi! I'm creating an index for the first time; this is for a 200+ page book. I've created my book file, put the large source indd file into it, and am well into the indexing.  I need to save and close the files. There's no problem saving the indd file, but after having made extensive index entries, the book file is not allowing me to save it. If I close the files, will my work get lost....or are all the changes actually sitting in the indd file? Help! What do I do here?

Many thanks,

Debra

Index markers are saved in each individual INDD file. The book file is just a link to bind them together. If you are having trouble with an INDB file, you could delete it entirely and then add your INDD files to a new book. All that will be lost is any book-level preferences you had set.

Thank you! It looked like this was the case but I wasn’t sure. --
