how to delete all index entries at once?

Post by urs7000 » 03 Jun 2020, 07:54

Hello again,

I'm still working with the index.

How can I delete all index entries in a document of a book at once so that I can create new index entries for the chapter?

QXP 2019, macOS 10.14.6

Best regards, J.

Hi! I could not make the test at my end but could you try exporting the text as Xpress Tags and open in text editor software so you can search and delete the tags in there? Never tried that but worth a try. HTH.

Thanks for your answer. I took the hard way and deleted about 70 index entries in 10 chapters by hand. :-( Here the program lacks usability.
