Thanks for the info. I, too, haven't done this since years ago. So long ago, in fact that I've tracked down my materials from Shlomo Perets' training back in 2002. Yes, all the files are part of dir_Abc_Def.book. The odd thing, for myself, is that the "child" file, is outside the folder that contains the rest of the book. Nothing I've tried so far works, so I'm hoping that someone on the list can help me find the "secret sauce" that I'm missing from the "recipe."

Also, the PDFs have to have the same relative directory relationship. If you have ./foo/foo.book and ./bar/bar.book, links in foo.pdf will be to ../bar/bar.pdf. If BEGIN_HERE.pdf is generated from an .fm file instead of a .book, that might be a problem.

I am using a character tag to constrain both the newlinks and gotolinks to small amounts of text. Before I moved file BEGIN_HERE.fm out of folder \Abc_Def, crossreferences among all files worked flawlessly. > > My latest attempt has been to specify named destinations (for example, newlink dir_About.fm) and jumps to named destinations (for example, gotolink dir_About.fm). > > In the source .fm files, these jumps work only a small part of the time.
