# Multiple indexes in Legrand Orange Book template

I am currently using the Legrand Orange Book template. Is there any way to create multiple indexes for the template? I tried to use multind.sty but seems it doesn't create anything.

• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – Adam Liter Sep 8 '14 at 3:52
• I am very happy knowing this template. Thank for asking this question. :-) – kiss my armpit Sep 8 '14 at 7:41

(Unfortunately, the template is not a package/class file, so it's necessary to manipulate the main.tex file containing the template (download link provided below)

I suggest the usage of imakeidx package

Idendify the lines \usepackage{makeindex} and replace it by

\usepackage[makeindex]{imakeidx} % Required to make an index with automatic generaton of index files


Then change \makeindex to following two commands (for two indexes, the names are not really important but must differ from each other, for more indexes use more \makeindex[name=...] commands accordingly)

\makeindex[name=myfirstindex,title={My super sophisticated first index},intoc=true] %%%% % Tells LaTeX to create the files required for indexing
\makeindex[name=mysecondindex,title={My even more sophisticated second index},intoc=true] %%%%


Replace any \index{foo} with either \index[myfirstindex]{foo} or \index[mysecondindex}{foo}.

At the end of main.tex look for the lines

\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{\textcolor{ocre}{Index}}
\printindex


Change to

%\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{\textcolor{ocre}{Index}}
\printindex[myfirstindex]
\printindex[mysecondindex]


Further questions on configuration depend on the requests -- I refer to imakeidx documentation. --shell-escape must be enabled for automatic generation of the index file.

## 'Final' document main.tex

It's still necessary to get the book_2.zip from here Legrand Orange Book

% The Legrand Orange Book
% LaTeX Template
% Version 1.4 (12/4/14)
%
% http://www.LaTeXTemplates.com
%
% Original author:
% Mathias Legrand (legrand.mathias@gmail.com)
%
%
% Compiling this template:
% This template uses biber for its bibliography and makeindex for its index.
% When you first open the template, compile it from the command line with the
% commands below to make sure your LaTeX distribution is configured correctly:
%
% 1) pdflatex main
% 2) makeindex main.idx -s StyleInd.ist
% 3) biber main
% 4) pdflatex main x 2
%
% After this, when you wish to update the bibliography/index use the appropriate
% command above and make sure to compile with pdflatex several times
% afterwards to propagate your changes to the document.
%
% This template also uses a number of packages which may need to be
% updated to the newest versions for the template to compile. It is strongly
% recommended you update your LaTeX distribution if you have any
% compilation errors.
%
% Important note:
% Chapter heading images should have a 2:1 width:height ratio,
% e.g. 920px width and 460px height.
