I'm trying to create multiple indexes in writer 4 but I cannot find out how to get them sorted alphabetically.
From [the] help files:
/"For example, you might want an index containing only the scientific names of species // //mentioned in the text, and a separate index containing only the common names of species. //"/ Now I want to do something like that but have the entries sorted alphabetically. But if I use the 'alphabetic' index type I can't mark entries by the *name *of the index only by it's *type *so I can only have one list and if I use 'user-defined' I only get an unsorted list. How could I create the above two indices?

Go to Insert | Indexes and Tables > | Indexes and Tables... | Index/Table | Type and title, and remove the tick from "Protected against manual changes". Now you will be able to select the index entries and use Tools | Sort... to sort them. You'll have to repeat the sorting each time you update the index, of course.

Is that what you are supposed to do?

I trust this helps.
