Import Cross-References from MS Word
I am having the same issue, I think. 350+ book file with multiple documents. Cross refs tag shows in Story Editor, but not in Cross ref pallete and did not update when page numbers were changed. Really frustrating. Please fix!!!!
This bug has become quite serious when a Word document that uses Word's cross-reference utility is imported into InDesign.
The underlying hidden code of the cross reference is brought into the live text in the InDesign layout. See https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2615282 and https://forums.adobe.com/message/10925779 for details.
1) Correct the bug in InDesign's import utility that allows the hidden code to come into the live text thread.
2) Add the cross-reference information to InDesign's References panel.
3) Hyperlink the cross-reference citation in the body text to the cross reference itself in the references section at the end of the document.
4) Ensure that all cross-reference hyperlinks are accessible when the PDF is exported from the InDesign layout.
