I then add a new item, so I've got: 2.3 Process Item 2.4 Check for Exceptions 2.5 Notify Client When I update I get: "See step 2.4 Check for Exceptions Notify Client As shown, the cross ref text is bolded as if it were now a heading, and it is showing the header titles for both 2.4 and 2.5.
Additionally, I'm sometimes seeing internal cross references that, when I try to follow them, attempt to open a new document and give a warning about only following trusted links instead of just navigating to the cross reference target in this document.
Adjust the automatically filled figure label as necessary. Right-click the highlighted text and then select "Update Field" to update all figure numbers.

If you want to update these items, the shared functionality serves as a convenience.
No need to update cross-references, tables of contents and separately; just select the whole document and click Update Field.
On the other hand, if you don't want to update other items, you need to select your cross-references more carefully.
Instead of selecting the entire document, select individual cross-references or a few paragraphs at a time to make sure you don't include items you want left alone.
I guess that might be a clue but I still don't know how to fix it.Any thoughts on what would cause this problem or how to avoid it?Hi CLWriter, When inserting cross-references to headings, it is important to not create a new paragraph below that heading by simply going to the end of the heading paragraph and pressing Enter.That tends to extend the bookmark used for the cross-reference into the new paragraph.Next time the cross-reference is updated, you get spurious extra content.Typically I create cross references to a numbered item (usually a numbered Heading 2 or Heading 3), with a reference to the paragraph number and a reference to the text. Then, if I add new numbered items to the list and then try to update the cross reference, I run into problems.
