You don't have to create an index for task 03, but it wouldn't hurt to know how to do it.
The Thirty-nine Steps, by John Buchan is a novel and thus an index is neither needed, nor useful. But we can use this document to practice creating an index, so that when we really need one, we will know how to make one.
To prepare a place to put an index, we'll go to the last page and enter the work "Index" as a heading 1.
Go to that location and generate a new line of text below the word index. Be sure that the new paragraph object is formatted as Normal style.
We want to insert an Index, so open the "Mark Entry" dialog box from the References ribbon.
If you need to add an index, you must mark up all the text to index ...
You will note that the Mark Index Entry tool adds some hidden text to the document. You will not see this text when the document prints, but you can see it when you have the Show/Hide button selected.
This is the markup the index tool is looking for.
We might have to do some editing to the index (changing Chambers to Chambers, for example), but we have an index.
If one now goes back to edit the document, the page numbers in the index might be affected. But we can always select the index object and update it, and the tool will re-paginate the index.
