How To Make A Cross Reference In Adobe InDesign CC

Hi there. It's time to make a cross reference where we see more on page four and this four is automatically generated. So if the content moves, this updates automatically, that is a cross reference and let's go learn how to make it. Okay, so the first thing we need to do is apply a couple of paragraph styles. Why? Because cross references often use paragraph styles to kind of decide where the link goes to. We're going to do that. We're gonna cheat by bringing into paragraph styles that I've already made. So let's go to window, go down to Styles and open up paragraph styles. And in here we're going to go to the little fly out menu and in here we're gonna go to load paragraph styles. I want you to go to 05 long documents and let's pull the paragraph styles that have already made in section two click open and I'm going to bring in all of them and just click OK? You can see we've got some styles there with nothing selected. I'm going to grab normal and delete it. Normal came through from o...

ur word document and I don't want it. First thing I'm gonna do is select everything. Okay, so my crazy five click or you can go command a on Mac or control a on a pc. Select everything on all the pages. And let's apply the body copy. Next thing I want to do is apply a few of the headings so there's my first one here. Okay, 2019 collection supply. MF hitting. Now the fun game is finding the rest of the headings that I've got. It's like a little find and seek and hunter game that I made. Okay, I'm sorry for this. So let's go and find the other headings. There is four. So oak Ash there is. You're just looking for the line that has one thing by itself, there's walnut and there's one more somewhere Take away as wally. There he is, bitch. I win. Okay, so those are my headings. So what I'd like to do is back to page one. Remember command J one. And let's say at the end of this first paragraph here, I'm gonna zoom in a little bit and I'm gonna say see more on page actually, I'm just gonna say Seymour on and let the cross reference put the rest in. So little space after their I'm gonna open up my cross references panel so it's under window down under type end tables, it's called cross references and I'm going to create a new one and I'm going to link to a paragraph what paragraph? It's going to be one of the paragraphs in my MF heading. And there they are all listed here. I want to link to Oak in this case and down here where it says the format. Okay, you can have full paragraph and page number. Okay, we'll just have a little look Can you see it says Seymour on Oak and that's what it's putting in putting in the paragraph name which is Oak on page three and puts it in the little quotes, You might like that, but not the quotes. A lot of people don't click on the pencil and you can see here, see the quotes either side of full path. Just delete those too. Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. So Seymour on Oak on page three. You might just want the page number though. Seymour on page three. Great. If I click ok that my friends is a cross reference. What I'm going to do now is let's move over to another page. Okay, so if I put in a couple of returns here, can you see I'm using that paragraph style over and over again, hitting one. So it's using this heading one, Oak. Okay, as my page number. So if I go through and just keep putting returns in to get to the next page, it's gonna actually still think it's on page three because I'm used this paragraph style all the way through. So what I'm gonna do is make sure when I put in say I want to break this to the next page, I'm gonna put it just in this full stop here. I'm gonna say I'm gonna say type break character and I'm going to say page break. Okay so it pushes it all the way over to the next page there. He is there awesome. So he should be on the new page now. Let's go up to where is he? Yeah, you can see it automatically updated. It's now on page four, so that will follow that around and that's the way of using a paragraph style to do it. Now. Another way to do a cross reference instead of using a paragraph style, which I guess a lot of people use, I prefer just putting something in court a text anchor and it just, it's a little bit more I guess. Simple. You don't have to create paragraph styles. So let's go on this other paragraph here, we're gonna say Seymour on page actually I'll get rid of page. So I'm just gonna say Seymour on. Okay. So what we need to do is put in something called a text anchor. And actually what it's actually called in the cross references panel. And the flat out here, actually we're gonna find a place where it needs to go. We're going to find is poor old Ash. Ash is unfortunately at the bottom of the column, we're going to ignore that for the moment. And so with Ash, I've got my cursor flashing just here, I'm going to say cross reference, I'm going to put in what's called a new hyperlink destination and what kind of hyperlink destination. Okay, look at pages before we're going to use this one called text anchor. And I'm gonna call this one Ash click OK. And what it is is it's invisible. You can see it if you go to type and go to show hidden characters. there's a little text anchor in there. He's tiny and hard to see that's in there. The little colon. Okay, so that's not very helpful. I'll turn those off but I put my text anchor in there now what we can do is back up on page one, come on J one, where's my option? Zooming around there? It is. Seymour on. Okay with my curse flashing, I can insert another cross reference but instead of trying to get a paragraph, I'm going to go to a text anchor and I've only got one on this page. Okay, Ash, and it's on page seven. Happy days. Let's click OK. And that is the two ways to create a cross reference. Actually, one more thing that can happen with cross references. That's quite useful if I export this as a pdf, but make sure it's an interactive pdf, I'll put mine on my desktop, I'm going to put on my desktop, even go to my advanced coursework and I call this cross reference example, leave everything by default. And what happens automatically is you'll see here Seymour on page four because it's an interactive pdf when I click on it. Okay, it jumps to page four. Same with that second one. Seymour on page seven and it jumps to page seven. Just there is Ash. We so should have fixed that. Alright, so that is cross referencing in in design. Let's get on to the next video
