Does anybody know how to edit an automatic index in a word file? I have been translating them line by line but I know there`s a more direct way to do it...

Thanks a lot!

It depends on the version you are using, but AFAIK, if you leave the index until the end, it should automatically update when you save the rest of the document.

And if there still is an error in the index, then most likely the error is also in the text and you need to find it and correct it there.
