my document has autonumbered headings styled as following:

1) Numbered Heading level 1

1.1) Numbered Heading level 2 ...

The auto-numbering is set as ^#)^> for heading 1 and ^1.^#)^> for heading 2

When I create a cross-reference it appears like this:

.... my text refer to chapt. 1) ...... please refer to par. 1.1) ....

but I'd like to have someting like this:

.... my text refer to chapt. 1 ...... please refer to par. 1.1 ...

without the closing brackets ).

Is there any way to get this?

Thank you in advance for any help.


  • How about a grep style that targets brackets and sets their font size to 0? Might work.... Commented Aug 7, 2023 at 9:25

Referencing to the Paragraph Number, <paraNum/>, in a Cross-Reference seems to always include all the characters of the Number field of the numbered list, except for ,.;: (I don't know if there are additional ignored characters).

The only solution I can come up with is to remove )^> from the Number field and add the closing parenthesis and the en space manually to each header.
