Hi Carol, I just did what you describe, and it works without any problems. I created a file with some text, created a cross-reference to this paragraph which lists only the paragraph text (<$paratext>) and created a PDF. Then I move the cursor to the right of the cross-reference. The cursor's appearance changes to an i-beam. Then I press the left mouse button and move the i-beam across the cross- reference. Then I press the Strikethrough symbol to apply this comment type. This also works when I press the Strikethough icon first and then start selecting. This works whether I start selecting from the left or the right side of the cross-reference. Maybe you should move the cursor farther away to get the i-beam cursor.
