Add text frames.
I'm not quite clear on what you need to do, but cross-refs are text items, so you need to have some text to link to. You can make it invisible, or possibly non-printing.
Thanks for the reply,
The flowchart created in Illustrator has text in it that needs to be the source of the cross-ref, but as it's a placed file I can't select the text in order to create the cross reference.
I'm not sure what you mean about adding text frames. How would this solve the problem?
On reflection, I think I know what you mean. So you're saying that if I draw a text frame over the text in the graphic and then create the x-ref that way. The only problem is that the cross-ref source text needs to be coloured and as I wouldn't be selecting any real text I wouldn't be able to achieve that.
I wish I could somehow select text in a .eps placed graphic.
Add text frames on top of the image in the areas where you want the links and add your destinations and links in those. Non-printing won't work, but you can set teh text color to none before export to hide them.
By the time you get done, it might be just as easy to build the chart in ID, though
Yeah you're probably right - it would be quicker to rebuild.
Thanks for the suggestions though.
This is outside my area, but I was thinking about the highlighting thing while eating my cereal, and I suspect you need to use buttons, not just ordinary hyperlinks or cross-refs, so they can have a mouse-over action and a go to destination action on click.
Thanks again for that. It's good information to have on hand - I'll more than likely recreate the chart this time 'round as there are a lot of cross-refs within it, but the button effect will be good for other scenarios where there are only 1 or 2 links needed.
