The toolbar at the bottom of the Index panel includes the following commands:

Command Button Description
New index entry Button image Opens a dialog where you can specify options for a new index entry. For detailed information on this dialog, please click here.
Edit index entry Button image Opens a dialog to modify the details of the index entry selected in the Index panel. For detailed information on this dialog, please click here.
Delete index entry Button image Deletes index entries selected in the Index panel. To select multiple index entries, use Ctrl+Click, Shift+Click, or CtrlShift+Click.
Index AutoMark Button image Automatically creates new index entries in the document using a concordance file. A concordance file contains a list of all terms you want to index.

Here is how to create a concordance file:
  1. Create a new blank document in Atlantis.
  2. Insert a 2-column table. In the left column of the table, type the text you want Atlantis to search for. In the right column, type the corresponding entry text that should be included in the generated index. For example:

    Concordance file
  3. Save the document.
The Index AutoMark command searches the active document for all the occurences of items from the left column of the table from a concordance file, and creates new index entries for each occurence.

Note that Atlantis searches for items from the concordance file case-sensitively. For example, if the left column of the concordance file includes "grizzly", new index entries would be created only for the lowercase occurences of "grizzly", but not for "Grizzly" or "GRIZZLY". If the active document should be searched for multiple case patterns of a word/phrase, all required case patterns must be included in the concordance file. For example:

Concordance file
Sort index entries alphabetically Button image Sorts index entries in the Index panel in ascending (A to Z) alphabetical order.
Sort index entries by location Button image Sorts index entries in the Index panel in same order as they appear in the document.
Go to index entry Button image Puts the cursor to the document location of the index entry selected in the Index panel.
