Insert cross-references

To insert a cross-reference to a heading or other text:

  1. In your document, place the cursor where you want the cross-reference to appear.

  2. If the Fields dialog box is not open, click Insert > Cross Reference. On the References tab of the Fields dialog box (Figure 367), in the Type list, click Insert Reference or Bookmarks (depending on how you set your references).

    You can leave this page open while you insert many cross-references.

  3. Click on the required item in the Selection list, which shows the bookmarks or references that have been defined. In the Format list, choose the type of reference required. Usually this will be Reference (to insert the full text of the reference or bookmark) or Page (to insert the number of the page the referenced or bookmarked text is on). Click Insert.

Frame1212

To insert a cross-reference to an item (such as a figure caption) that you have previously inserted into the document as a numbering-sequence field:

  1. In your document, place the cursor where you want the cross-reference to appear. If the Fields dialog box is not already open, click Insert > Cross-reference.

  2. On the References tab of the Fields dialog box (Figure 364), select Figure in the Type list.

  3. Click on the required item in the Selection list, which shows the list of figures that have previously been inserted into the document. The Format list shows different choices from those given for headings. Choose the type of reference required. Usually this will be Category and Number (to insert the word “Figure†and its number), Reference (to insert the word “Figure†with its number and the full text of the caption), or Page (to insert the number of the page the figure is on).

  4. Click Insert.
