    Cross-referencing text from within a placed Illustrator file

      Hi everyone,

       

      I've done a flowchart in Illustrator and have placed it into Indesign. I need to add some cross references to some of the numbers in the chart but since it's a placed graphic I'm unable to select the text in order to create the cross reference.

       

      I wondered whether there was a workaround for this, ie. by maybe creating a no-fill, no-border rectangle and then somehow using that as the cross reference source. I can't find a way to do this but would be grateful if anyone has any ideas.

       

      Thanks in advance.
