When I remove the three lines


from the following document, makeindex works without problem and the index is printed. But in presence of these lines I get an error and the index is not printed.

Is there a way to have both table of contents and index when using arabi package?



  • I'm afraid that MakeIndex is not able to comply with non Latin scripts. – egreg Oct 22 '14 at 17:15
  • @egreg As I wrote if I remove those three line, Makeindex seems to worka and the index is printed. – Name Oct 22 '14 at 17:17
  • I get no error from your example. – egreg Oct 22 '14 at 17:20
  • @egreg when running Makeindex I get: makeindex.exe, version 2.15 [MiKTeX 2.9] (kpathsea + Thai support). Scanning input file temp.idx...done (0 entries accepted, 1 rejected). Nothing written in temp.ind. Transcript written in temp.ilg. – Name Oct 22 '14 at 17:26
  • The problem is that when a chapter starts, the page numbering changes and so the annotations in the .idx file are not understood by MakeIndex any more. – egreg Oct 22 '14 at 17:48
