    Formatting index entries automatically

    Marina Michaels Level 1

      I would like to format some index entries in italics (because they are scientific names). According to the InDesign help (InDesign Help | Creating an index), "To add emphasis to a particular index entry, select Number Style Override, and then specify a character style."

       

      I've done that. I have a character style named Italics (in all my book files, including the index file). However, when I generate the index, nothing is in italics. Is this a bug, or am I missing something?

       

      Thanks!
