Cross reference equations, figures and tables.
Works with:
183K+
Overview
This add-on allows the user to label equations, figures and tables and refer to them within the text. It now also allows users to create labels for any element. These elements are numbered automatically and references are updated to match. If their order changes, references update to match. If one is removed, references to it are highlighted in red in the text. The text and style of references and labels can be customised. 

Insert labels and references as hyperlinks. Instead of a URL, add a code recognised by Cross Reference, then an underscore, then your choice of name.

For example, to label a graph of people's heights you would add text underneath the graph, highlight that text, press Ctrl+K to add a link and enter #figur_heights as the URL. The name 'heights' is chosen to be meaningful, but any name is fine. The codes for labels are as follows: #equat, #figur, #table. They are followed by an underscore, then the name. References are the same, but their codes are #equ, #fig, #tab. So to refer to our graph of heights we would add some text in a paragraph (e.g. the word 'figure'), highlight it, add a link with the url #fig_heights.

Works great. Takes a bit of reading to get started, but that's ok. Although a screenshot with some annotations would cut this time from 2 minutes to 3 seconds. But more importantly, is there no way for it to work without the permission to access all documents fully ("See, edit, create, and delete all your Google Docs documents")? This is kind of not acceptable in enterprise environments :(

Hi there, This is a really cool add-on. I have problem creating custom configuration. Let's say I have label defined with #picsy and reference defined with #pic. Once I save the config and run the update procedure an error Pops up saying that it can not recognise #pic. On top os that if I close the side bar and reopen it - my configuration is lost. How can I mitigate this problem?

This is super helpful for me while I struggle to write my research dissertation in Google Docs - thank you! A bit of a learning curve, but once mastered it works really well. A big 'thank you' to davidrowthorn for developing this and making it freely available! I love the "Create list of figures" feature (in Beta). It would be great to have this for Tables as well, and to have a little control over how the page numbers are displayed - for me they have a decimal point, which isn't helpful.

Very useful add-on. The "create a list of figures (beta)" feature has had a bug for months that I'm hoping will be resolved soon (I'll up the star rating accordingly). It terminates figure descriptions on a period which means that text after any decimal number or multisentence text is lost in the summary table. Detecting a paragraph return as the terminating character instead would work better (not a line break as sometimes these are also needed in descriptions for formatting). I hope the same feature is also rolled out for tables too. I'd happily give it five stars if this is implemented.

Nice implementation. Tried it on a document with over 100 figures and it worked nicely. Generating the table of figures took about 10 minutes, but worked out fine in the end. Would be very useful to have a sidebar list of labeled figures to select to quickly insert references to figures, as the process of inspecting hrefs each time you need a add a reference is a little clunky.

This has been insanely useful for engineering reports. Mess around with it to get used to it and dont forget that it also does tables and equations.

I'm pretty happy with this so far! There ain't no easy way to do this, and yeh, it's a bit cumbersome dealing with the #figur and #fig notations, but as a three-decade veteran of LaTeX, I think the work vs payoff is reasonable enough, and I heartily thank the author for taking the time to do this. The configuration section seems to allow for a variety of styles.
