Live references to images/figures
I need each image to have a caption which begins with "Figure 1: blah blah" and if I move the image, the caption should automatically re-number. I think I have the automatic re-numbering working using paragraph styles, but doing that seems to prohibit the other things I need to do, such as...
I need to have each image coupled with an in-text reference, like. "As seen in Figure 1, blah blah blah." And if I move the image, again, not only would the caption re-number but the in-text reference to it would re-number automatically, too.
Finally, that in-text reference should automatically also be a link, so if the text is clicked on, the person shoots down to the referenced image.
I need this too!! How to make InDesign do this????
I believe you can already do items 1 and 2: check out this link:
I think in a PDF it will make clickable cross-references: not sure about the ID doc itself. I tend to do this sort of stuff in Word these days (oh the horror!).
