Resolving Cross-References That Are Hidden in Conditional Text

If the source information is present, why is a cross-reference unresolved? Check to see whether the paragraph is conditional text that was hidden when FrameMaker attempted to update its references and is now shown again. You can find cross-references that have become unresolved because of hidden conditional text by the following procedure:

  1. Search for unresolved cross-references first without turning conditional text back on, and resolve the references you can resolve.

  2. TIP

    To turn all conditional text back on, select Special > Conditional Text. On the Conditional Text window, click on Show/Hide. On the Show/Hide Conditional Text window that appears, select Show All and click on Set.

  3. Turn all conditional text back on.

  4. Search for unresolved cross-references again. If a source paragraph is found now that was not found at step 1, it was lost by hiding the conditional text. To solve the underlying problem, set the same conditional tag on the cross-reference, too.
