Calculate index pages
The index elements are functional to show the page number of the titles linked to them. While viewing the document, the calculation of pages is not automatic, as it is done automatically during ink or braille printing.
Generally, you do not need to have the pages displayed while viewing the document. If you do have this need, the page counting feature of the indexes does the trick.
Indexes can show ink page references, braille page references, real page references or philological indications. The base page calculation detects ink page references, real pages, and philological indications. If the indexes contain the variables for braille page references, the window shows two boxes with which you can instruct the braille transcription of the document to derive braille page references from it.
If the indexes use the variable for braille page references, this window shows two editable fields:
- Calculate braille pages: box that, if activated, allows you to transcribe the document in braille in order to derive braille page references from it. Depending on the size of the document, the operation of calculating pages from a few tenths of a second may take a few seconds longer.
- Default braille table: as in the braille printing of the document, this box allows you to choose the default braille table to be used in the transcription of the document.
Clicking the Ok button calculates the pages of the document and shows them in the index elements. Page values are temporary and are retained until the document is closed. When printing the document, the calculation of pages is done automatically.
