Cross-References Can No Longer Be Deleted


Recommended Posts

Cross-References can't be deleted in the 2.3.0.2114 Beta whether individually or with multiple Cross-References selected and regardless of whether creating a new document or using a document created in the 2.2.1 Retail Version.

Selecting the Cross-Reference in the Cross-References Panel and selecting 'Remove Cross-Reference' shows the 'Do you wish to remove the selected cross-references? They will be converted to regular text.' message but the text is neither converted nor the Cross-Reference itself deleted from the Cross-Reference panel.

Hi @Sean P,

Of course, the file is attached... It works without issue in the 2.2.1 Retail version.

Hi @Hangman

I've been able to replicate that and it has been logged with the devs. 
As a workaround, if you Edit Detached, you can then delete cross-references from text frames locked to a Master Page

Hi @EmT,

Thanks for confirming, logging and for the workaround... :)

The issue "Cannot delete cross-reference from text frame locked to master. " (REF: AF-1122) has been fixed by the developers in internal build "2.3.0.2150".
This fix should soon be available as a customer beta and is planned for inclusion in the next customer release.
Customer beta builds are announced here and you can participate by following these instructions.
If you still experience this problem once you are using that build version (or later) please reply to this thread including @Serif Info Bot to notify us.
