4. Editing Power Tools > 44. Hack More Flexible Cross-Referencing

Hack More Flexible Cross-Referencing

Word’s cross-referencing feature locks you into a box of predetermined possibilities. This hack shows you how to build a better box.

Word’s Cross-referencing dialog offers only a few choices for the types of items you can create cross-references to, as shown in Figure 4-29.

But what if the items you want to reference aren’t in that list? If you’re working in a template that has several different types of headings, including some that aren’t styled using one of Word’s built-in styles, creating cross-references to those headings is no simple task.

This hack shows you how to build your own cross-reference dialog, like the one shown in Figure 4-30. The left column lists every paragraph style in the document, and the right column lists each paragraph that uses the selected style.
