As someone else said, this is a known limitation of insets, xrefs, and PDFs.

Another solution that I use is a FrameScript that atomically does the file
"flattening" for you. I've used it a lot.

Subject: inter-file cross-reference issue

I am using FM 8. I have several small (topic) files that I am importing by
reference into a larger (chapter) file. 

Some of these files contain cross-references that function as expected in
the source file, but not in the file into which they are imported. The
cross-reference links are not broken (they do not show up on a broken links
search). The text appears, but the linking functionality is gone. Since I
have the text set up to appear as links, this is an issue.

Am I missing something, or does FM simply not support inter-file
cross-reference linking? If not, can anyone suggest a workaround?

Any help would be very appreciated. 

Thank you!
