Hi Carol, With no commenting tool selected, I can strike through text in the middle of a cross-reference.
When I move the cursor over a cross-reference, then the cursor changes to the hand cursor. Then I press the left mouse button and move the i-beam across part of the cross-reference. The text gets selected. This also works inside of cross-reference text. Then I press the Strikethrough symbol to apply this comment type. However, I agree that I cannot press the Strikethrough symbol and then select part of the cross-reference text. You know that you can change your selected text when you press the SHIFT key and the Left/Right arrow keys!
