By allowing users to connect certain ideas, arguments and sources throughout their document, SciFlow's cross-referencing is a powerful tool to be used during the writing process and, depending on the kind of publication you're creating, the publishing process. If you'd rather watch a quick video than read an article about cross-referencing, feel free to check out the video. Otherwise, read on below it.

Cross-referencing in SciFlow is easy. Once you know which part of your document you wish to cross-reference and where, simply go to the document you want to cross reference in and click the table of contents button in the top-right. 

This will open up your document's current structure, where you can see your headings, subheadings in a hierarchical order, from the top to the bottom of your document. Special chapters, such as the Abstract and Bibliography also appear here.

By clicking the part of your document you wish to place your cross-reference in the Table of Contents, SciFlow will automatically jump to that place in your document. Now, drag and drop the name of your heading you wish to cross-reference into the place of the text you wish to place it in. This will cause a cross-reference to the selected Heading to be created where you released the drag & drop.

By mousing over the cross-reference you can see which chapter is cross-referenced. Furthermore, you can jump to the chapter you are cross-referencing by clicking the cross-reference. This can facilitate communication and navigation of your document, along with its original purpose of referring to references from elsewhere in your text.

That's it for now, you should be able to get started with cross-referencing in SciFlow. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us via the chat.
