You create and manage glossaries using the Glossary Editor. You can create a glossary from the main File menu available in the Library or any other document editor. When you create a new glossary or open an existing glossary, the Glossary Editor launches in a new tab and displays an empty glossary (or the selected glossary) where you can add, edit, and delete terms and change their properties (such as tooltip). You can save the glossary to any folder in the Library and then assign it to one or more documents anywhere in the Library. 

If you save a glossary to the wrong folder in the Library, you always have the option to move the glossary document to another folder. You can also rename a glossary at any time without breaking any links from your content to the glossary.

Note: You can open multiple glossaries at the same time. Each glossary appears in its own tab.

In addition to its name, each glossary document has a language assigned to it. The default language of a new glossary document is the language of the Developer. However, you can change the language of the glossary in the Properties toolpane.

 Multi-user Considerations

To create a new glossary:

  1. On the File menu, point to New New and choose Glossary Glossary.
  2. Add terms to the glossary.
  3. Save the new glossary.
    You can also close the tab and click Yes in response to the Save Document message.
    When you save a glossary for the first time, you are prompted to provide a name for it. Enter a name for the glossary by typing over the default name. Although the glossary name does not have to be unique, it is recommended that you provide a meaningful name so you can easily manage multiple glossaries.
    Long document names are supported.
