Enable copy-paste of text / text frames without breaking cross references
Today, copying a text frame with cross references breaks them - including copying text with cross references. This is very problematic and very difficult to discover during editing - and the only solution is to create the cross reference manully again. Very cumbersome.

there is another workaround if you like to move text inside a document.
Do not cut-paste or copy-paste.
Move texts around by dragging it to a different insertion point.
To be able to do that use a Story Editor Window where you can select text and drag it to a different place.
Also to a different text insertion point in the Layout Window!
Or enable this feature in Layout View with:
Preferences > Type > Drag and Drop Text Editing
[ x ] Enable In Layout View ( not enabled by default )
[ x ] Enable in Story Editor ( this is option is set by default )
