Managing the Index

The index is one of the most important ways to get users quickly to the information they need. Users click a keyword listed in the index and it either takes them directly to the topic containing the information they are looking for, or to a list of topics that contain the keyword. 

Managing the Index is supported in two ways:

  1. When creating new topic pages, it pays to directly drop selected texts onto the Index Entries on Page dockable window. This window restricts the view on the index to the keywords for the active document. It also supports deleting and renaming entries in a very direct way. 
  2. When finalizing the help project, you can see and manage the complete index of your help project from the Index dockable window.
