Overview
Cross reference equations, figures and tables.
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.

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.

Could be easier to use. When I clicked apply, shifted the label to be BEFORE the equation instead of being AFTER. I'd prefer if the numbering was (1) instead of just 1 which looks naked without the parenthesis.

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.

This was working very well for me. However, in my current paper, I keep getting this response: "One of your paragraphs contains more than one label. Paragraphs may contain multiple references, but only one label. You probably meant to insert a reference. The last label in the paragraph has been highlighted in red." If I delete lines and insert new paragraph returns, I keep getting the same message. If I delete the label, then the previous label triggers the same message. Any suggestions??

They need to make it work without demanding full access to the user's drive, which is prohibited in corporate settings.

Thank you for your feedback. The add-on requests two permissions: access to Documents and ability to run third-party scripts in sidebar. Both of these are essential. Neither provides full access to the user's drive.
