The idea is to include the text of your caption at the top of the figure in small white, not just the number, and then make your xrefs point to that. That should make the text an active link. I haven't tested it, just been following this thread with interest.
As for your problems with shifting captions to the top, what you described should work, I think. When you make the PDF, do you have "create named destinations for all paragraphs" turned on? If not, try that. It's in PDF Setup > Links.

Created a paragraph tag for the top of the pictures which contains a new numbering system. (To do this, one more place holder, < >, had to be inserted into the existing numbering system in each para tag.) The numbers match the numbers of the visible tags below the pictures, but are white and 2 pt. 2. I then went to each reference to a figure (Search Any Cross Reference, click, click, click . . . ) and changed the reference to Text. Then beside said reference, I inserted a reference to the figure's crown tag. This seems to work fine in the PDF except for one problem. When the reader puts his cursor over the figure reference, nothing happens. He must instead move it to the right of the figure ref to get that little linking hand icon. This would require some explanation. Better to go back to putting all the captions above the pictures. I am suspicious that I've missed something in translation. Is there meant to be a ricochet so that one clicks the caption cross ref which kicks to the caption under the picture, which kicks to the invisible reference atop the picture? Insanity lurks. ~ Don Spencer _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to Framers as rebecca.officer at alliedtelesyn.co.nz.
