Mark index entries for text that spans a range of pages

Creating an index is a two-part process. You mark the entries and then build the index.

But sometimes you might want to index large blocks of text that span a range of pages. Here’s how to do that:

  1. Select the range of text that you want to index.

  2. Click Insert > Bookmark.
    Insert bookmark

  3. In the Bookmark name box, type a name, and then click Add.

  4. Click References > Mark Entry.
    Mark entry

  5. In the Main entry box, type the index entry for the marked text.
    Mark Index Entry dialog box

  6. Under Options, click Page range.

  7. In the Bookmark box, type or select the bookmark name that you typed in step 3, and then click Mark.

After you mark the entries, you’re ready to create the index and insert it into your document.
