    InDesign Index Subtopics to Topics

    monical26266380

      I am using the most recent version of InDesign to create an index for a 400 page history book.

       

      I have created a topic of Publications, with all of the various titles in the book listed as subtopics under Publications

       

      I now need to remove them as subtopics and turn them into their own main Topic.

       

      For example, right now I have TOPIC: Publications --> SUBTOPIC: BBC

       

      This needs to change to TOPIC: BBC

       

      Is there a way to do this without going in and redoing each one (replacing deleting Publication from the main sort box and moving BBC up)?

       

      Thank you!

          Hi, did you get a solution for your problem? I have a similar situation. I'm using Id 2017.0 on macOS 10.11.6.

           

          I have a topics that need to become subtopics. I had already indexed all of them before my client asked for this change.

           

          For example:

          Topics: Tech, Computers, Science, and now I need Computers to be a subtopic of Tech.

           

          On the Index panel, I tried dragging the topics and subtopics, the references... Nothing worked.

           

          Thanks.
