Description rmkrueger 2005-08-10 17:45:50 UTC
would it be possible to display figures and tables by their names rather than
their numbers in the references panel in the fields-dialog when making
cross-references? navigator already has that behaviour and I think it would make
creating cross-references a lot easier for users who name their objects (tables,
figures etc.). Currently it displays table 1, table2 .... instead of all the
nice names that I've given them which forces me to navigate to the table in the
document, look up that number and go back to insert the reference.

Reassigned to requirements.

Additionally to displaying the name, the "description" should be displayed, i.e.
the text that appears in an object's caption. 

I Think this could be even easier implemented, since only objects that have a
caption appear in the References dialog (maybe a reference is set to the
caption, not the actual object...).
