Index Feature Issue

Post by natanfrench » Tue Feb 18, 2020 3:45 pm


I am about to publish my PhD Thesis, and I am wanting to create a scripture index before I send the document off to the publisher for type-setting. It will take me some time obviously, but I do think the indexing feature in Mellel will prove helpful.

However, in the completed manuscript, I am unable to get the indexing feature to result in any data. It simply places some formatting changes into the document but without any of the data from the inserted index marks. I did create a blank document, typed in some gibberish and tested it, and in that case, it did work.

So, I am assuming it has something to do with my thesis section and/or page breaks throughout the document? Any advice would be very helpful.

Many thanks!

It shouldn't. I had many sections and page breaks in my book and the Index feature worked very well.

If something is corrupted in your doc, you should have the Redlers take a look at it (
