I have a lengthy document (90+ pages) with dozens of main headings and sub headings. When creating cross references I noticed that the order the sub heads appear in the "new cross reference" dialogue box do not relate to the order they appear in the document. That is, the first sub head may appear somewhere in the middle of the "new cross reference" dialogue box, and the other sub heads also appear in a random order. This makes it extremely challenging to create cross references.
Is there a way to re-order the way sub heads are listed in the "new cross reference" dialogue box so that they follow the same order they appear in the document?
This is also something I would love to have, because finding one headline amongst, like, 50 others when all are unsorted can be annoying.
This should be reported to Adobe as feature request.
I still have that same problem,
but now when I have about 150 different heads that I need to cross reference, I have not only one paragraph style, but I split it (in my case according to chapters) so I have e. g. 12 styles that all look the same but have different names – this way I can keep the numbers of headlines down that I have to scroll through.
There was another nice workaround posted to my problem: https://forums.adobe.com/message/4269332#expires_in=86399990&token_type=bearer&access_toke n=eyJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiIsIng1dSI6…
Maybe this one works for you.
