TexMaker and index generation

On my laptop I use TexMaker. I couldn’t get it to generate an index in my document. I had to compile it on my iPad with TexWriter.

Somewhere I found a hint that the naming convention for the \LaTeX-file in TexMaker is very strict. No spaces or uppercases. So I renamed my file from Wiskundige Varia.tex to wisvar.tex and indeed the generation of an index worked. Maybe it works that way with most \LaTeX-editors; I have no idea.

And never forget that you need page numbers for a working index…
