Hi Cynthia,

You are not doing anything wrong.  We had the same problem.  The reason that
the links do not work is that they still point to the original location and
not to the place where the text insets are.  To make the links work, you
have to reset each xref to the new location.

I know that this sounds like a lot of trouble, but there is an easy
solution.  Contact Rick Quatro at www.frameexpert.com.  Rick has a
framescript already written that does this in a couple of seconds.  It also
resets the links back to the original location if you want to update the
files.  Note that you also have to buy a FrameScript licence to run a
FrameScript on your system.  You can buy FrameScript for $149.95 at Finite
Matters at http://www.framescript.com/index.php?q=node/77.

Hope this helps,

Subject: Xrefs in text insets (FM9)


I have docs with text insets and quite a lot of Xrefs.

When I print the container doc to PDF, the Xrefs within the inset doc do
not convert to links.

Have I done something stupid? Or is this normal? The User Guide of FM9
sucks compared with previous ones.
