Hi. I'd like to have a cross reference (see page no. xxx) part of a hyperllink. I insert the cross reference, and then select the cross reference as well as some copy before it: for more info, see page xxx. The result is that on the interactive pdf, only the page XXX is clikcable and active, not the entire sentence.
What am I missing?
Details: OS X, CS6.
I was thinking they may not play nicely together, but it so makes sense for them to well work together: Cross page references need to account for page reflow, and these very references are likely to be used as document level links. Now they are working, somewhat. But they only allow the cross referenced copy (page XX) to be the link. Not a longer string of copy.
Here is my process:
With insertion point in text
1. Select 'Insert New Cross Reference':
2. Highltight text with the cross reference.
3. Select 'New Hyperlink Destination'
4.Select 'Page' as type.
Also, if there is a clear explanation detailing hyperlink and hyperlink destinations, I would enjoy reading that. TBetween the naming and the interface, it's a bit confusing.
I think I know what would help you with cross references. Anne-Marie Concepcion of InDesignSecrets.com just did a great video on the subject. After seeing this, you probably won't need to use hyperlinks.
