Word-by-word sort order in indexes

Hi again,

 

I need to change the sort order in my indexes from letter-by-letter to word-by word.

 

According to the help file,

 

1. Choose View > Reference Pages, and display the reference page that contains the special text flow for the index.

 

2. Add a space at the beginning of the IgnoreChars paragraph in the special text flow of the index. (The space cannot be at the end of the paragraph.)

 

The *IgnoreCharsIOM paragraph in the IOM flow contains "-_–—[»–«»". Try as I might, I cannot add a space at the beginning. If I add a space after the initial dash, then put a dash afterwards, and then get rid of the first dash (to move the space to the beginning) the space gets removed.

 

I presume I'm misunderstanding the instructions.... Can anyone help?

 

Thanks

 

KF
