Perhaps I might ask a more preliminary question: when using project structure, is cross-document referencing possible between two product files, or only between two component files within a single product file?

Kind regards,
Talal

Links between the two are successfully made, but the actual page numbers are not being printed (which, for my purposes, are what I actually need, not links). Am I doing something wrong, or is this a known bug (such that I should cease my attempts)? Is \useexternaldocument the wrong command for this purpose? Minimum example files below:
