I'm using text anchors (via the "insert new hyperlink" dialogue) to cross reference table and figure titles and page numbers in a "table and figure" list in a multi-chapter book file. Text made into text anchors has what looks like a light blue colon before it when hidden characters are shown.
One of the chapters has a bunch of spurious text anchors in the pop-up ("Text Anchor 14", etc.) that must have been inserted by mistake--maybe I fell asleep on the keyboard or something.
So I wanted to find and remove these unneeded anchors. Problem is, in the documents where I've made these anchors, none of them--even the real ones--show up in the Hyperlinks panel. There's nothing there. The only time something shows up is in the front matter file, where the "table and figure" list is--there, obviously, the cross-references are listed.
Plus, I went to one of the real anchors, a figure, and selected the text. Then I poked around menus for a long time but still couldn't find a way to REMOVE the text anchor, to unanchor it, if you will.
Appreciate any guidance!
