You can work with Cross-references from Hyperlink Panel. Hyperlink panel is divided into 2 sections i.e. Hyperlinks and Cross-reference.
Go to Windows-->Interactive-->Hyperlink to open Hyperlink panel.
All the Cross-reference which were created or will be created will be listed under Cross-References Section.
- edit the definition of a cross-reference
Double-click on the Cross-Reference in Hyperlink panel to edit it Definition or properties.
Go to Type-->Hyperlink and Cross-References-->Cross-Reference Options...
- navigate from a cross-reference to its target (in InDesign)
Select the Cross-Reference in the Hyperlink Panel.
Go to the Hyperlink panel flyout menu to navigate to the Source or to the Destination of the Cross-reference.
Thanks! it's taken a while to make time to go and check, but your tip about the Hyperlink panel was valuable. One place for both setting and managing cross-references would have been a good idea, but we'll just have to live with this split.
I couldn't get anywhere with your suggestion about Type > Hyperlink > Cross-reference options, though: whether the cursor is in a cross-reference or not, that option is always greyed out for me.
A conceptual question, while I'm looking at cross-references: why is it possible to edit the text of the cross-reference? crude example: I've used the cross-reference mechanism to add a cross-reference to the heading Right-hand column, but there's nothing to stop me editing this so the read sees "the Left-hand column, described on page x". I'd expect the text/page number to be treated like variables, and uneditable.
