Has anyone worked with duplicate cross-reference markers before?
My question is, is the uique number in each marker text the same if multiple markers exist in the same location?
Thank you for your help.
If you let FM create the markers, then every one will have a unique id number and multiple cross-refs to the same location will all automatically point to the same marker with the same id number. How did you get the dupes? FM won't let you copy & paste a marker, but it will let you cut & paste.
You can find the markers by either doing it in a brute force manner using the Find > Marker of type (and have the Marker window open to see the contents) or by using a MIF version and using a text editor to search for the MText right after a <MType 9> entry. The MText would be the duplicate and the Unique ID entry would be two lines further.
The general structure of a Marker in MIF is as in the following example:
<MText `37042: Body: At vero eos et accusam et iusto odio blandit praes'>
> # end of Marker
Cross-refs target the MText line using a <XRefSrcText ...> entry that is the same as the MText content.
