Deleting index tags
You can delete all index tags that were created with AFP Indexer, including page group, supplemental page, page-level, and NOP index definitions. You can also delete index tags that were created for specific lines in index areas and address areas, and intermediate lines and ZIP Codes in address areas.
Note: Be careful deleting index tags if you have made other enhancements to the sample AFP file that depend on the index tags. For example, do not delete an index tag if you used AFP Editor to create a barcode that contains the index tag value.
