Great suggestion, thanks Winfried. I have been working with all files open, because some have that font error message upon opening, and I haven't taken time yet to fix that. And . as time goes by, I think/suspect increasingly that this problem has to do with linking to empty target paragraphs. Ergo, my request for input on nonprinting characters I might use to trick FM into thinking that those paras are not really empty.
Thanks again!

Could it be that you have a file in the book which is closed and which triggers error messages when opened (e.g. missing fonts). Does it make a difference, if you open all files of the book?

The process called for a generate, which I did. And now, lots of broken xrefs. I did change the index suffix, but I can't imagine that would cause the problem . would it? From: VLM TechSubs [mailto:techs...@vibrantlivingministries.org] Sent: Monday, September 30, 2013 3:41 PM To: Framers Subject: FM 8: Xref markers keep breaking and re-breaking Greetings! I put xref markers in throughout a book. These markers are simple xrefs to other chapters, nothing fancy. I generate the book, all is well. After working for a while, I do another generate (sometimes with intervening generates that were fine), and all of a sudden, lots of broken xrefs. I fix them all, generate, and all is well. Several generates later, poof! A large number of broken xrefs again. Has anyone else encountered something like this?
