# How can I disable the linking for figures in LyX?

Complete LaTeX and LyX newbie here.

I am currently writing a document in LyX and I'm using hyperref to have links in the ToC, citations etc. The problem is that I added a figure (with float) and when I make a cross-reference in the text, the reference itself becomes a link that leads to the page that contains the actual figure. For example:

------Sample Graphic-------

Figure 1.1: Example of a graphic

And in the text that follows:

As we can see in figure 1.1 there is...

Now if I hover the mouse over 1.1 there is a link pointing to the location of the actual figure. Is there any way to disable the links for figures? Perhaps using "hypersetup" or a renewcommand...?

Would yo like to disable links for tables also, perhaps for cross-references in general? –  Stefan Kottwitz Aug 18 '10 at 15:52
Why would you want to do this? –  Caramdir Aug 18 '10 at 16:05
I think so, however as I'm not sure on the tables yet can you perhaps give the solution to each case? –  Andreas K. Aug 18 '10 at 16:07
I think it would be consistent to do it for all cross-references or for no one. Otherwise a reader might wonder why he can click on table 1.1 and equation 1.1 but not on figure 1.1, assuming a mistake. –  Stefan Kottwitz Aug 18 '10 at 16:10
@Caramdir Well I'm following instructions as to how I have to write it so... :-P @Stefan Thanks a lot for the answer, works like a charm. However I want to ask (mostly out of curiosity) how could I have done that for figures only? –  Andreas K. Aug 18 '10 at 16:24
