    Making cross-references grey in Word 2003 (WORD 2003)

    I installed office 2003 on my new pc, and moved over all of my templates. Things seem to be good so far, but my document cross-references no longer show up as grey-shaded, unless I click on them. Since most of my documents are published in hard-copy, I need to have the grey shading working for my readers, who have been trained to look for the shading when they want a cross-reference. This is shading behind the text, not coloring the text itself.

    It was working fine in my previous version of word...now it does not. Anyone have an answer?

    Could this be related to Field shading? Tools>Options...>View>Field Shading. (Location from Word 2002)

    That would affect the field shading when the document is viewed on the monitor, but it shouldn't shade it when printed. I'm not sure how someone would have been able to shade printed cross-references in previous versions, either. You could create a character style which could be applied to all cross-references which includes shading, but it would have to be applied manually with each cross-reference. I don't see anything in Tools/Options/Print which would allow you to print this shading either. I'm stumped.
