Chapter 11. Reference Features > Cross-References

Cross-References

A cross-reference is a reference to an item that appears in another location in a document. “See Table 2 in Chapter 3” and “See the section titled ’Bookmarks’ on page 5” are two examples of cross-references. Cross-references are commonly used in technical documents, like computer how-to books. (In fact, if Adobe InDesign had a cross-reference feature like Word’s, this book would have a lot more cross-references, complete with page numbers.)

Word’s cross-reference feature is extremely powerful. It enables you to create cross-references to headings, footnotes, bookmarks, captions, numbered paragraphs, and other items in your Word documents. If an item moves or is modified, the cross-reference can be easily updated for the change. And if you’re creating a document that will be read onscreen, you can take advantage of the hyperlink feature to make cross-references clickable links to the referenced item.
