Index levels

Postby bqnguyen » Fri Oct 23, 2009 7:04 am

Does anyone know if the levels of indices (currently 3) can be increased?
Thanks in advance.

Not with makeindex. You'd have to use xindy if you want more than three levels.

Hi Nicola:

It took me a while but I think I finally managed to install xindy in MiKTeX (using the procedure described by lartkma (Xindy for MiKTeX).) However, after running through, I still have only 3 levels of indices. I use:
...
\usepackage{makeidx}
\makeindex
...
\printindex

The MakeIndex step in MiKTeK is actually done with texindy.exe.

The index page looks different from when makeindex was used but still only 3 levels.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for your help.

You'd have to write a xindy style file that changes the maximum level from 3 to however deep you want to go. I can't remember off-hand how to do it, but if no one here can help, maybe someone on the xindy mailing list can help.
