When to Index GNOME Documentation

When you want to index a manual, you need to consider the type of documentation:

Online Help

As Scrollkeeper is still a product in development, the use of indexing is not yet clear. Until the situation clarifies, you only need to put a single index entry into each online Help manual to create a primary entry for the application name. The template for the online Help manuals provides an example of where to create the index entry in the online Help manual. When the role and function of Scrollkeeper becomes clearer, writers can apply more of the indexing principles outlined in this chapter.

You can find out more about the templates in the http://developer.gnome.org/projects/gdp/handbook.html.

Printed manuals

Apply the indexing principles outlined in this chapter to printed manuals.
