Index in a multilevel structure

Add and manage content

The index rule belongs to the group of front and back matter rules. Index rules are preset allowing one instance, and using a fixed sequence. When you complete the rule you need to update the allowed objects list, then move the rule to the appropriate location in the structure builder.

Content or style guide rules

  • Each product guide must include an Index so users can locate the content easily.
  • The index is always added as the last object to the book so that it is the last content in the published PDF document.
