updating an index in InDesign CS6 and retaining commas

Feb 23, 2013 4:24 PM

Tags: #index #commas #generate_index #comma-separated

I have an index in a book document I am creating in InDesign CS6 and as I add imagery to the text the page numbers change so I go to the index panel and generate index which overrides the previous version. This has been working perfectly but my last attempt caused the commas between the page numbers to turn into dots above the base line. I wonder if anyone knows how I can solve this problem and turn them back into commas. In the 'more options'  section of teh index panel I have specified commas as the page separators but this isn't changing them back to commas in the index,

I would be very grateful if anyone can help me with this.

    .. Dots above the baseline? ... Check if you didn't accidentally apply something like Superscript, either as 'default' for new text frames, or as part of a paragraph or character style that ends up in your new index.
