Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using cross-references, part of InDesign CC: Interactive Document Fundamentals (2014).
…In a previous movie, we saw how you can use InDesign's Hyperlinks…panel to create and manage clickable links between content in your documents.…And you can also use the Cross References panel…to create links that are dynamic in nature, so…that when the content on one end changes, the…other end can be updated to reflect the change.…Let's see how they work.…Here I have a college course catalog and it starts out with some opening…pages including a table of contents, listing…the courses, Followed by some course descriptions.…And at the end is a form that students can use to sign up for the courses.…
In each year, the names of the courses might change.…So it might be good to have the course names on the form.…Be cross referenced to the names in the course descriptions.…That way, when a course name changes, I only have to make the change in the…description and then update the cross references to…put all the new names on this form.…To illustrate, let's change one of the entries on…the form from regular text to a cross reference.…
