Cross-references and track changes

I am using cross-references to numbered paragraphs in a Word document in track changes. When I move a numbered paragraph within my document, the cross-references updates but the reference is wrong (normally goes to 1.1). Only when track changes is activated. The work around I found is turning-off track, then cutting the paragraph, turning on track before I copy. The down fault with that is that my client will not see where I cut the paragraph from. Any ideas?

Actually, when testing this further, I have noticed the following behavior: If you first move a bookmarked (cross-referenced) paragraph and then Accept All Changes in Document, the bookmark gets deleted.
 
This confirms your observations, and it certainly explains the error message you are seeing. I'd say it's a bug. :-(

Does it work properly for you - and yes, I do use the cut and paste when doing this. Did you try it with Word 2003? Thanks for helping me with this.
