This is part of the reason why I *strongly* prefer using system variables and user variables to construct headers and footers. Another reason is that I see absolutely no benefit to having active hyperlinks in the headers and footers of the PDF I produce that take the reader to some strange and non-useful location like the title page. One set of templates I once had to work with used cross-references in the headers and footers, and I absolutely hated it.
It's probably possible to make x-refs in headers and footers behave better with some FrameScript scripting, but I just don't see the point. With the possible exception of "page x of y" page numbering, I haven't yet encountered any requirement for information in headers and footers that I wasn't able to accomplish more directly using variables. _________________________________________________________________ With Windows Live for mobile, your contacts travel with you. http://www.windowslive.com/mobile/overview.html?ocid=TXT_TAGLM_WL_Refresh_mobile_052008
