I need to create cross-references to numbered paragraphs. The auto number for the paragraphs includes not only a number, but a text character that is part of the number format. For example, a numbered list like 1) 2) 3) and so forth, where the cross reference display only the 1, 2, or 3, and not the closing paren.
FrameMaker has a building block <paranumonly> which ignores any characters other than digits in the auto number. InDesign doesn't seem to be able to do that. That is why I'm posting on the scripting forum. Perhaps there is a script that can do this?
