Index terms identify text which should be used for the generation of an index. By default, index terms are created from page labels. However, the Scroll Exporters also come with the {Index-term}-macro, which allows you to more granular specify the location of the index term within a page and to define primary, secondary and tertiary index terms.

In the following sections we describe how to mark index terms in your documentation using the {Index-term}-macro

To index terms:

  1. Click in front of the term you want to index.
  2. Enter {scroll indexterm and press Enter.
    The screen Insert 'Scroll Indexterm' Macro is displayed.
  3. Enter the primary index term in the field Primary.
    (info) You must at least define the primary parameter.
  4. Optional, you can add a secondary and tertiary index term in the field Secondary, respectively Tertiary.
  5. Optional, enter a title of the keyword to be displayed in the index in the field Title.
    (info) If your export content as context-sensitive help, this title will be displayed in a list, when multiple link targets for a keyword are available.
  6. Optional, define the significance of the index term.
  7. Click Insert.

You have now successfully indexed the wanted terms. In your exports the macro will insert the defined terms in your index.
