Repackaged book-document cross-references do not update file path
A series of documents in a Book have cross-references to one another. All are correct and working properly.
I create a new package for my publisher and test the cross-references:
they are pointing at locations in my original files rather than the ones in the new package.
Since those files exist, the cross-references have good status. Moving that package to a new computer breaks them, of course.
I have the same problem and it is very dangerous when you work on the new assemblage that have cross references on the old one because pages can be different.
Is there a way to select all the cross-references and point them to a desired document?
This is MOST annoying. I have hundreds of cross-references, and they all get lost when I copy the file to a new location with a different directory structure. Surely this is something that "package files" should take care of, as it does with the location of the individual files in a "book".

FWIW: I see this issue as well.

I agree. I had an exchange on the topic under "Cross-references lost when copying files " and we came to the same conclusion that this is a bug that needs attention.
