Trouble getting the index to update

Postby templateuser » Thu Mar 12, 2015 9:49 am

Great template. It really looks nice!

I have a problem getting the index to update, though.
I run following:

- main.tex (pdflatex)
- main.idx
- main.bbl
- main.tex again…

But it does not update, when I e.g. add more \index{XXX} or if I change the name of the file the Index “chapter” does not appear at all.
Not sure I got the “main.idx -s” correct. Am I suppose to run more than main.idx or call it with additional parameters??

Hi Daniel,

In the header of the main document it states exactly what commands you should run in the command line once you’ve navigated to the directory of the template. Regarding the index, make sure you are running

makeindex main.idx -s

in the command line, once you recompile using pdflatex the index should update and be in the correct style!
