What you want is usually termed a "spot cross reference", which would perhaps ideally be implemented as a Marker of definition $markertext, but FM doesn't have this feature, despite it being a wishlist item for a couple of decades.Reportedly, if you're using Structured Frame, there's an Element workaround.For unstructured Frame, here's an old discussion with multiple work-arounds (one of which I'm still using in a current project).

I might add, that for that old discussion, the presumption would then have been workflow to PDF or paper. For PDF, a goal might have been for the Xref to be usefully hypertext (and some weren't, such as the Ref Page hack).

Nowawadays, workflow to HTML, eBook or XML could also be requirements, if not priorities. How the various legacy work-arounds for spot-Xref function in those workflows would need some testing.

Is there an active feature request for this? I can see where it would be very useful and would like to vote for it.
