I am publishing a BOOK created in InDesign, with 8 documents in the Book file. The Table of contents is in document 01, the bibliography, List of Illustrations, and Index are in document 08. For the print book I usedcross-references to fetch the page numbers for the illustrations, and it worked fine. (att A)
For the ebook, the cross-references in the List of Illustrations was quite a failure. (att B)
What looks like a hyperlink in fact fails. (att C)
I have selected all documents and updated all cross-references, but that did not help.
So I thought to use hyperlinks instead. I created the destinations, then went to create a new hyperlink, but could not do so. (see att D). As you can see on this page, I have successfully created a number of them, but others prevent me from proceeding. When I hover over "Create new hyperlink" I get a "do not enter" symbol -- circle with a slash through it. No can do.
Any ideas? I am considering simply publishing with this ragged list. It is low priority in the scheme of things, because people can search through an ebook and find things, and only a few people would even care. But I hate leaving it so messy.
