Index - a dockable window

Traditionally an index is designed so that it contains first and second level entries. First-level entries describe a general category. Second-level entries are indented under the first-level entries and describe specific topics within that category. With HTML Help, you can use an unlimited number of index levels.

You can see and manage the complete index of your help project from the Index dockable window.
