Title: Cross-referencing in InDesign (split)
Post by: iago on April 14, 2009, 12:20:56 PM
Update: InDesign CS4 now supports cross-referencing natively, no extra plugins needed. I'm pretty happy with it.

Just got CS4 and I'd love a few pointers on how to implement this, Fred.

Hey!! This is the second time someone's posted to the nearly year-old thread (Cross-referencing in InDesign (http://www.indie-rpgs.com/forum/index.php?topic=26488.0)). Pay attention to what you're doing, please.

Best, Ron

Ok let's beat this topic dead! :)
Here's a short tutorial:

Place your text marker where you want the reference "target" (or mark the word).

Open the Hyperlinks panel.

Choose "new hyperlink destination" in the panel menu.

Click ok

Place your marker where you want the dynamic page number. Left click and choose: Interactive > Insert cross-reference

Choose your correct text anchor (several to choose between if you've done this several times).

Choose format: "Page number"

Choose type: "Invisible rectangle"

Click ok!

Done (the page number should appear if you did everything correct)!
