    Automatic massive cross references generation?

    IlGhisla

      Hello everybody,

      I am thinking about creating a technical dictionary and looking for an easy way to generate automatic cross references based on the recognition of a list of words. Basically I guess if InDesign can recognize some specific words (anywhere in the document) and automatically convert them into cross references.

      I've got about 3.000 words styled as paragraph title H1. Each one is present as title only once in the document so there is only one destination for every reference. Whenever one of these 3.000 words is present in the document text I need it to be a cross reference pointing to the corresponding paragraph title (the description of that word).

      Anyone ever encountered a similar need?

      Thank you in advance for your help.
