Description paaguti 2003-11-12 11:01:02 UTC
I'm writing a scientific paper and would like to have a simple form
to perform the following task:

1. Define a new paragraph type called 'Reference' which looks like:
[<sequence number>] Text...
and does autonumbering pretty much like figures and tables are autonumbered,
renumbered, etc. etc.

2. Use it at the end of a document to include references to scientific papers
I cite in my paper

3. Be able to crossreference any of the 'Reference's in my text pretty much 
the same way as I'm able to crossreference figures and tables.

word processor. This simple feature would convince a lot of people to

numbered list.

BTW, there's also a feature called bibliography. Please consult online help for

With Issue 2204 there is an old enhancement request about this already. Will
close this Issue as a duplicate.
