I don't know if this is the right place to post such a thread but I need to learn how to use index styles 1 to 9 in Word.
What's an Index?
It seems to me that an Index works like a table of content.
A table of content displays text accordingly with Heading styles (1 to 9).
Table of content
Heading 1 (Part one)
Heading 2 (Chapter one)
Heading 3 (Sub-chapter one)
Heading 4 (Section one)
Heading 5 (Paragraph one)
Etc. (A. ; B. ; C.)
If a table of content displays text that has been marked with style Heading 1 to 9, then an index should do the same.
Index styles 1 to 9
Open Word > Go to Style menu > Expand Style menu > Display all styles > Scroll down till reaching style: "Index 1, Index 2, 3, etc.".
My guess is an index can contain entry levels 1 to 9 which should be displayed like a table of content.
Index 1 (Main category entry)
Index 2 (Sub-category entry)
Index 3 (Idem)
Index 4 (Idem)
Index 5 (Idem)
I would like my index to look like this.
But each time I mark entries and insert an idenx, the index looks like this:
I would be glad if someone helped me with this issue.
Please, tell me if I misunderstood something.
Thank you for reading me.
