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!

Best regards
