Can I edit cross-reference building blocks?

May 2, 2013 10:06 AM


I've inherited a template that I believe has some custom cross-reference building blocks. One of them <XREF>, I believe, is making my cross-references blue (for example, my Figure & page cross reference format = <XREF>Figure\ <$paranumonly><Default ¶ Font> on page\ <$pagenum>).


Can I modify the XREF building block?

    <XREF> appears to be naming a Character Format.

    Format > Character > Designer ...

    Character Tag: [ XREF ]

    Color: [ Blue or some other named color that is a blue ]


    Change the ChFmt's color def, the definition of the named color, or revise the Xref format.

    Look in the character style list (I think it has another name but can't remember). If there is a character format named XREF, you can edit it.


    The building blocks that begin with a $ are not editable.
