Description isr81 2005-01-22 17:31:02 UTC
When inserting a reference for a target, the type of naming for this reference is selected by a list. Therefore, there isn't a way to use a custom naming for the reference. In some languages, such as Greek (and German I could think of), it is necessary to change the 'category' name of an object, so that when the reference is used in a text, it would be grammatically correct. The only way I found this could be done, is by using a plain text category naming and referencing only by number. But this way, the linking is done only by number. My suggestion is that apart from the default naming, there should exist a field for the user to enter custom text, also linking to a target.

1. In a new Writer document Use Insert > Fields > Other to open the Fields dialog. 2. Select the Variables tab. 3. Select the Number range type. 4. Select Table - the name changes to Table in the lower left corner. 5. In the value field, enter "Table + 1" (without the double quotes). 6. Click Insert to insert the value 1. 7. Click Insert again to inset the value 2. Now, create a your own variable. 8. In the name field, enter Equation. 9. In the value field, enter "Equation + 1" (without the double quotes). 10. click insert to insert the value 1. 11. Click Insert again to inset the value 2. 12. click on the References tab. 13. Under type, click on Table. I see the value 1 and the value 12. Initially, I considered this a bug until I realized that all text to the left of the inserted field is considered its name. The text is included even if that text includes other fields. This is the name that is inserted. I never saw this with respect to tables because I always start a table caption on its own paragraph and precede it with the text "Table ". I thought there was a problem because I label equations using (<EQUATION + 1>). The name, therefore, is "(". This would be worse if I attempted to place the equation number to the right of an equation.
