Hi,

This is a very specific question.  I don't want advice about how to do this in other software packages.  I need help with Adobe InDesign specifically (FYI, I'm using CS2, but I imagine that the basic procedure is relatively standard across most versions).

I want to generate in-line page number references.  Things like:

"For additional terminology, see the Glossary (page 95)."

The catch is, I want the "95" (or whatever the page number happens to be) to update automatically if the Glossary gets moved to a new page.

Again, this isn't a formal index, nor is it a table of contents.  This is in-line page references.

Thanks,
D

InDesign doesn't support it natively.  You have to buy a third-party plugin called InXref.  I use it religiously.

Hey Fred,

Thanks for the info.  However, as the tides of the internet are wont to do, someone pointed out some other options over on Story-Games.

One of those options was a completely free plugin.

I just Cross-Referenced about 90+ citations.  It was a little clunky, but it worked.  I think it took about 2 hours.

For the sake of interest (and posterity), care to talk about why XRef rocks?  I'd be interested in your insight.

Cheers,
D

Oh, i don't claim it rocks. At least a few years ago, it was the only player in the game. Looks like that may have changed.
