Resolved (sort of): Unresolved XREF error, but no "real" unresolved XREFs

Hi Peter,

I've gotten several off-list responses stating that this is a known bug
(thanks Fred Ridder, Penelope Perkins, and Rick Quatro!).

Last year, Hedley Finger posted a workaround for making sure that there are
no real broken XREFs when this error message appears. Here's Hedley's post
that Penelope was kind enough to forward to me:

Strangely enough, I didn't get any broken XREF messages when I went back to
the files and tried to follow Hedley's suggestion.

I suppose another workaround would be to use a link checker plug-in to make
sure there are no broken links in the output files.

Thanks again, everyone!!

Have you tried searching with all conditions visible? Also, have you looked
for unresolved x-refs on the master pages or reference pages?
