Any DITA map generates in the PDF output a table of contents.
If the topics contain indexterms, these are collected and added to an index page at the end of the publication.
Try transforming the DITA samples bundled in oXygen and see the output.

Many regards,
Dan

It is not clear, you succeeded in having a TOC and Index?
If not, please read below:

The index section collects all the index terms from the publication and shows them in a sorted tree.
To add index to your publication, you just need to add index terms to the topics metadata:

Code: Select all


  <title>The topic title.</title>
<prolog>
<metadata>
<keywords>
<indexterm>Installing <indexterm>Water Pump</indexterm></indexterm>
</keywords>
</metadata>
</prolog>
<body>
.....
or in the content itself:

Code: Select all


...
<p>Open the lid then turn the body pump to the right.
<indexterm>Installing <indexterm>Water Pump</indexterm></indexterm>
</p>
...
In case you are using a bookmap, you need to specify where the index list should be presented, for instance in the backmatter of the book. This is done by using an indexlist element in the booklists if the backmatter:

Code: Select all


<bookmap>
...
<chapter href="tasks/troubleshooting.dita">
...
</chapter>
<backmatter>
<booklists>
<indexlist/>
</booklists>
</backmatter>
</bookmap>
For plain maps, the index list is automatically added at the end of the publication, with no need to modify the map.

Also, for plain maps, the TOC is automatically generated.

For DITA Book Maps you will need to add a toc element in the booklist element from the frontmatter:

Code: Select all


<bookmap>
...
<frontmatter>
<booklists>
<toc/>
<figurelist/>
<tablelist/>
</booklists>
</frontmatter>
...
...
Many regards,
Dan

Hello,
Unfortunately putting the chapter number before the page number is not supported by the transformation.

But putting a line of dots between the indexterm and the page can be done like this:

Code: Select all


*[class~="index/formatted-value"],
*[class~="index/refid"] {
display:inline;
}

*[class~="index/entry"] {
text-align:justify;
}
*[class~="index/entry"] *[class~="index/formatted-value"]:after {
content:leader('.');
}

Many regards,
Dan

Hi Dan,

We have <indexterms> in our DITA (it's content converted from FrameMaker), but we don't want to generate the index or its TOC entry at this time. How do we suppress index generation in PDF Chemistry?

At

https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/ ... om_the_toc

the "hide.frontpage.toc.index.glossary" parameter is mentioned, but we still want the frontmatter and TOC.

Thanks!

Hi Chris,

You could remove the Index references (from TOC/content/bookmarks), by using a CSS customization, like:

Code: Select all

*[class~="indexlist"]{
    display: none;
}

*[class~="index/groups"]{
    display: none;
    counter-reset: none;
    bookmark-level: 0;
}
This way you would remove only the Index, without using the dedicated predefined parameter (that, indeed, would also hide other components, like front page, TOC, etc.)

Cheers,
Costin
