Using existing page groups and index tags
You can also choose whether to use the existing index tags. If you do not tell AFP Indexer whether to use existing page groups and index tags, all existing page groups and index tags are used unless you create new page groups.
In most cases, if an AFP file contains page groups, you should use them. If you use the existing page groups, you cannot change the page group boundaries. However, you can create additional index tags and modify existing tag values.
To use existing page groups and index tags:
- In AFP Visual Environment, open a sample AFP file. Then click .
- Click .You might see a message that says the page groups and indexes might change or be invalid and asks if you want to continue. Click Yes. You see the Use Existing Page Groups window.
- In the Use page group level field, select a number, 0 to 20, for the levels in the page group structure that
you want to keep.Note: To keep all page groups, select 0. Select a number greater than 0 only if you have nested page groups.
For example, the first figure shows a page group structure with two levels. To keep the page groups in all of the levels, select 0. However, to keep only the page groups in the second level (and any levels below it), select 1. The second figure shows the new page structure after you select 1.
- To remove the index tags that are defined in the AFP file, clear the Use index tags box.
- Click OK.You see the page groups and index tags that you chose to use in the AFP file.
