Is the content you formatted with your CrossRef tag an actual FrameMaker cross-reference (which we'll call an "x-ref" here to distinguish it as an active entity in your document rather than a format definition)? If so, when the x-ref is updated--which happens automatically when you open the FM file--it reverts to the formatting that is specified in the Cross Reference format. This is completely by design.
If that's the case, the solution is simple: just include the CrossRef character format as part of the Cross Reference format definition rather than applying it manually, after the fact. That way, when the x-ref is updated, it will reapply the character format you want, regardless of any formatting applied directly to the result of the x-ref that appears in the document. -Fred Ridder From: thomas.scal...@crossmatch.com To: email@example.com Subject: Character format that won't stick Date: Tue, 26 Aug 2014 18:06:25 +0000 Esteemed colleagues, I am using Frame 184.108.40.2064 on Windows 7. I applied a character format (CrossRef) to text in a document. I late saved the document. When I return to Frame and open the document, the character format has reverted to the previous format. I recall having this problem before, a long time ago, and cannot for the life of me remember what to do to make the character format stick. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
