The first time you generate a list or index (if you don’t use a template), it uses the page layout of the source document or the first nongenerated document in the book, and all entries look the same. You can change the page design and the formats in the list or index after you generate it, just as you do in any other document. When you generate the file again, your changes are retained.
1)Copy the template to the source document’s folder using the same filename as the list or index.
2)Generate the list or index.
tip: You can also use File > Import > Formats to import a template’s formats. Then generate the list or index again so any changes in the special text flow are reflected in the generated file.
