<Delete Index Topic>

You can use the <Delete Index Topic> command to specify that a topic associated with an index term in a main guide file should not be displayed if the main guide file is mixed in with your Mixin guide file.

<Delete Index Topic> indexTerm, indexTopic 
A text string specifying the index term associated with the topic.
A text string specifying the topic that should not be displayed when the mixin is mixed in with the main guide file.
If a Mixin guide file includes a <Delete Index Topic> command, when Apple Guide mixes in the main guide file with the mixin, the topic specified by the indexTopic parameter will not be shown in the list of topics for the specified index term. If the main guide file is not mixed in with the Mixin guide file, the topic is shown.

The <Delete Index Topic> command can be used only in the source file for a Mixin guide file that also includes the <Mixin> command. To use the <Delete Index Topic> command, you must specify a SYM file in the symName parameter of the <Mixin> command.

#do not show this index term if the main guide file is 
# mixed in with this guide file
<Delete Index Topic> "printer drivers", "choose a printer"
For information on the <Mixin> command, see page 10-19. For information on the <Topic Area>, <Header>, and <Topic> commands, see page 10-125, page 10-135, and page 10-137, respectively.
