Hi there,

Imagine I have a document with bullet points :

  • Item 1, see more in chapter 2.1
  • Item 2, see more in chapter 2.2
  • Item 3, see more in chapter 2.3

Further in the document, each chapter is surrounded by BLOCK_ placeholders. In the list above, each chapter number (2.x) is a cross-reference to the corresponding chapter. Is there a way for the cross-references to be updated if a block (chapter) is deleted? Manually in Word you would right-click the cross-reference and select "Update field", or select the whole doc (ctrl+a), right-click and "Update field".
