Reply to: Modify xref target on save?

Thanks for assist, David. Since there are a couple of ways a user can insert an xref, I decided to check them all at validation time instead, and modify the the href if needed. Here is what I came up with, which seems to work on all my tests so far:

      for (var i = 0; i < xrefs.length; ++i) {
    var href  = xrefs.item(i).nodeValue;
    var split = href.indexOf(“#”)
    var fname = href.substr(0, split);
    if (fname == ActiveDocument.name) {
      xrefs.item(i).nodeValue = href.substr(split);
