I have seen it happen. I have posted about it here, too, and submitted a bug report, but I've not tested to see if it is still present in CC versions of InDesign post-CS6. Cross-references can cause goofy, implausible rag, in conditions that I can't pin down. However, your text will most likely compose as you expect if you switch from the ordinary Paragraph Composer to the World-Ready Paragraph Composer.
I've seen it happen when I set up a cross reference using the page number format which I have edited to remove the word 'page'. InDesign composes the paragraph as if the word 'page' is still included in the cross reference.
Thanks everyone for your comments.
Joel, thanks, using the World-Ready Paragraph Composer seemed to work! My line break looks normal now, no matter how may cross-refs I put in. Thanks so much.
When 52 cross-ref is created, it makes the line break before "articles" even though there is room on the line.
Thanks Peter, I've added the screen captures of the problem. After switching my paragraph to World-ready composer, it is breaking properly now.
Thanks for your comments.
