If not, can anyone suggest a workaround?
Is your problem that they don't work in the PDF you create? That's a known limitation -- x-refs within text insets don't become hyperlinks in PDF. The workaround is this: (1) Open and save all the files in the book. (2) Convert all the text insets to text. (3) Create the PDF. (4) Close all the files *without saving*. Step 4 is extremely important. Make sure you have current backups in case you forget step 4. :-) HTH! Richard Richard G.
