    Cross reference syntax error - Indesign CS6

    SteveCRS

      I need to have a special character (&) as part of a cross reference (e.g. H&S). However, when I enter this in the x-ref format dialogue I get a syntax error message. Any ideas?

          Usually, a cross ref is placed on a marked text, so if the text contains H & S, then it works. In the cross-ref format you can not place other special characters than the dialog offers in the special characters menu. Whereas I see that special characters are inserted, for example, as ^6. Perhaps, if you play around with the numbers...
