Although customization of table contents is available extensively in Writer, the default settings are sometimes sufficient for creation.

Indexes work in a similar way to tables of contents.  On top of the alphabetical indexes, you will find that other types of indexes such as illustrations, objects, and tables are also provided.  If you want to create a user-defined index you can do that too.
