Hi Bill:

Unfortunately, this is a FrameMaker quirk and I think it has been in the
last 3 releases.  All xref markers go "poof" when you sort the table.
Unfortunately, the "fix" is to NOT do any sorting after you start placing

Russ or Scott, do you have any plug-ins that fix this?

Hi everyone,

We ran into an interesting issue. When sorting a table, we are noticing that
the xrefs are broken after the sort. We're running into this a lot now that
our translations are coming back from the localizers (given the tables need
to be re-sorted based on the language rules).

Has anyone else noticed this broken xref issue when sorting tables
containing xrefs, and does anyone know a workaround other than manually
sorting the tables?
