Re: Selectg tab to separate index entry from its reference

Thanks Þorvarður, phspaelti, Philip and Hamid. You all know far more than I about options to resolve my dilemma; but I am forging ahead. Yes, Þorvarður, I have numerous (triple digits...I have not counted them all) "live" books that I am converting to ODF. I use the term "live" because I have been w...
