Just like the table of contents, the keyword index and table of figures items are standard Word fields, which are inserted just as you would insert them in any other Word document where you want to include a keyword index or table of figures. Refer to the Word documentation for instructions on how to insert and format them. Look for the documentation on "Index" and "Table of Figures".
1.Create a page in the DOCX template for the keyword index. There is no required location, but you will want it to be after the Topics Section.
2.If you want to include the index in the table of contents, create a header using a style that you have included as a level 1 item in the Table of Contents field.
3.Click in the position where you want the index to appear. Then select Quick Parts > Field in the Text section of the Insert tab in Word.
4.Select the Index item in the Field names: box, click on Index... to adjust the index options and then on OK to insert the field.
A table of figures is a list of the captions of all the images in your project with references to their page numbers.
Note that some of the DOCX templates included with Help+Manual already come with a table of figures pre-configured. So check it in a template you're using first by editing it in Word, before you try to create one yourself.
Step 1: Enter captions for all the images you want to include in the Table of Figures
Captions are required for the Table of Figures, because the captions are the entries in the table. You enter them in the topic editor by double-clicking on the image in the editor.
Step 2: Create the table of figures entry in your DOCX template
1.Create a page in the DOCX template for the keyword index. There is no required location, you can place it before or after the Topics Section as you please.
2.If you want to include an entry for the Table of Figures in the TOC, create a header using a style that you have included as a level 1 item in the Table of Contents field.
3.Click in the position where you want the Table of Figures to appear. Then select the References tab in Word and click on Insert Table of Figures in the Captions section.

4.Select the Options... item in the Word Table of Figures dialog and then select Style as the source for the Table of Figures. (This will only be present if you use one of the existing Help+Manual DOCX templates as your starting point.) Then select "H+M Image Caption" as the style to use. You can configure everything else as you please, of course. Consult the Word documentation for further details.
Since a table of figures is a normal Word element it is quite possible to add one after you have published your DOCX file. You just add it in Word in the same way that you would in any other Word document.
Doing this can have an advantage, because it allows you to use a style to select the text for the table of figures instead of the image captions. When you define the table of figures in your template you can't use a style because the styles from your project are not present there.
Since all paragraphs formatted with the selected style will become your "table of figures "entries you can use this for making tables of other items as well. For example, you can create a table of tables by creating captions for your tables formatted with a specific style. You then add a table of figures in Word after generating the final Word DOCX document, select the style used for your table captions and generate your table of tables.

All these items are normal Word components. Set them up as you would in a normal Word document. Enter Help+Manual variables anywhere you like, using Word comment fields to contain the variables.
Use Word's page number variables, not Help+Manual's!
