Indexing - Adobe Indesign Windows

I searched this forum but couldn't find an answer. I've indexed a 60 page book and now need to make some corrections. How do I open the index palette so I can see all the entries under A, or B, or C and make any needed corrections. All I can get to is one entry under each letter. Thanks.......Ron...

    I don't know what you mean but I did notice that when I clicked on the reference radio button it shows the plus signs and when I click on topic they go away.

    When I click on the plus sign, all the references show up. It's not showing one at a time as you've described. I think maybe you have not created your index entries properly.

    To see if they are there you can right click on the text in the layout using the type tool and click show hidden characters. Another way is to go into the story editor to see if you can find the entries in there. There should be a little icon next to the words where the index entry is. If you don't see an icon, that means the words are not defined as an index entry.

    All the entries are there. I just can't get to them in the palette. It will show only one entry per letter instead of all the entries under that letter. I never had this problem in PM.

    Sometimes when strange things like this happen, I have seen people post that deleting their preferences files corrects problems. Give it a try to see if it will help.

    It may not work but can't hurt anything either.

    Hi

    I am trying to index a doent. When i look at the Index pallette I can
    see 'A' to 'Z' and if i click on a letter, then I can see entries for that
    letter, some have additional levels. All seems Ok.

    However when i generate the index and load the text, then many of the
    letters have no entries beside them, although there are entries.

    This is the first index i have created, so likely I am doing something
    wrong, but not sure what !

    Any help gratefully received.

    Thanks

    Alex
