          it is possible to do this.


          copy the object which has cross-reference

          then update the cross-references it will be ok

            @Teetan & Elmnas – "copy" and "move" might be the wrong phrases when interacting between two versions of InDesign (I always have to think of the methods copy(), paste() or the methods move() and duplicate() and that will not work between documents of two different versions, even if you are running both apps simultaneously).


            You could try IDMS snippets by exporting a snippet in the one version and place that snippet in the other version. Maybe tagged text would be an option as well. Never tried that on text with cross-references…
