Dear Indesign Pro's.
I have been using Indesign to make my graduation research report.
There are many words which could use a additional description in the form of a Glossary at the end of the report.
How can I create suchs a page. I have a index so far (but than it shows the page numbers, not the description).
I work with Indesign CS6, version 8 on a Windows 7 laptop with 2ghz, 8GB mem and 60GB free space.
Hope you can show me how to resolve this..
Since you need to type or at least copy&paste the description from somewhere, the whole glossary will be normal flow text. So you might transform the generated index into a glossary or copy the keywords and create the glossary manually.
It all depends on what you have in mind how it shall look like. A normal glossary, like I did it once, is very simple. Keyword as bold headline, normal text as description.
By now I've realised that this might be quite challenging..
My preferred option is:
Word 1.. Description Page 2,54,324
Word 2.. Description Page 4,32,47
But I also would be happier with
Word 1.. Description
Word 2.. Description
I just would like the words the be displayed according the character style (which i have a script for that puts them in a index according to the style). It just doesnt give me a option to put in a desctription.
It shows this:
Word 1.. Page 2,54,324
I would like it to be one of the above options, but i don't know how to do it..
