In order for cross-book cross-references to work, you *must* have all of the referenced book files open in FrameMaker when you generate the PDF for the book that contains the x-refs. The component files need not be open--just the book file is enough. But without the book file, FrameMaker has no way to locate the target of the x-ref to generate a valid link in the PDF. Also note that the PDFs will need to have the same relative locations as the book files for the links to be valid. If the books are in different directories, you'll need to mirror that directory structure when you deliver the PDFs. If not, then Acrobat will not be able to find the target file when the reader tries to follow an inter-book link. -Fred Ridder _________________________________________________________________ Need to know the score, the latest news, or you need your Hotmail?-get your "fix". http://www.msnmobilefix.com/Default.aspx
