I experienced a distressing problem in an FM file that contained dozens of cross references. As I was editing the document, all the XRefs were suddenly and unexpectedly converted to ordinary text.
The problem occurred in middle of an editing session. I am certain that when I opened the document, the XRefs were OK. In the past, I have occasionally detected individual cross references that were converted to text. I always assumed that the conversion was my own editing error, but now I am not so sure. I already restored the XRefs, but does someone have an idea what may have caused the problem and how I can prevent it in the future? Is there a known FrameMaker 7.2 bug that converts XRefs to text? Is there a "Convert all XRefs to Text" command that I inadvertently activated? Possibly relevant information: The FM document was originally created by importing from Word. Many but not all of the XRefs were originally created by a FrameScript program, used in conjunction with the Word import. The document has been heavily edited since then, with no other abnormal phenomena.
