# multind prints empty index

I'm trying to run a document with multiple indices after reading this and its reference, but my pdf's indices have no content. I've even run MakeIndex on the file, although I don't know if that applies when using multind. A short example I'm not able to run successfully is:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage{multind}
\makeindex{books}
\makeindex{authors}

\begin{document}
Text\index{books}{b1}, text\index{authors}{a1}.

Text\index{books}{b2}\index{authors}{a2}. End of text.

\printindex{books}{The Books index}
\printindex{authors}{The Authors index}
\end{document}


The idx files are there and they have the info. What little trick am I missing?

From this you have to run

makeindex books.idx
makeindex authors.idx


The problem is that when you call makeindex from editor it runs on main.idx, where main is the name of your current tex file.

Edit: To configure TeXstudio (TeXmaker is similar, I guess) to run makeindex on all idx files on the current folder, pass ?*.idx to the command, as shown in the image

Shame on me, thanks! –  Andrestand Jan 8 at 18:54
My problem now is to use a wildcard or to pass multiple idx input to MakeIndex through command configuration in TexMaker... any idea? –  Andrestand Jan 8 at 19:12
I'm afraid TexMaker does not accept * nor ?* –  Andrestand Jan 8 at 19:32
Install TeXstudio. It's very similar and much better than TeXmaker. –  Sigur Jan 8 at 19:34
I don't think I'm in the right moment to change, but thanks anyway. By now I think I'll use a .bat to process every .idx –  Andrestand Jan 8 at 19:37
