Notice you can adjust which styles are included and what level they will appear in the table of contents.




INDEXES are a little more difficult.  This is because you must tell the program which words to index.  This can be done by creating a CONCORDANCE file.   This file will contain a list of the words you want to index.812h.gif (8894 bytes)

This option is located under AUTOMARK.

MARK ENTRY will allow you to select the words for your index from the document.
