As an extended idea of Using section sign (§) for cross-references to sections, how can we use

See ⚙5.2 and ☰5.3 in ☞123.

instead of:

See figure 5.2 and table 5.3 in page 123.

(Surely there are more appropriate symbols, but because of HTML and font concerns I used these symbols.)

Love the idea, might adapt it for some documents. –  Konrad Rudolph Jun 15 '12 at 15:31

When using the cleveref package it works exactly like in the link you gave, only you need to change the command to

\crefname{figure}{$\alpha$}{$\alpha\alpha$}
\Crefname{figure}{$\alpha$}{$\alpha\alpha$}
\crefname{page}{$\beta$}{$\beta\beta$}
\Crefname{page}{$\beta$}{$\beta\beta$}
\crefname{table}{$\gamma$}{$\gamma\gamma$}
\Crefname{table}{$\gamma$}{$\gamma\gamma$}

Just change the symbols. \cref{first figure} now gives an alpha 1, \cpageref{fig} gives an beta {pagenumber here}.

I shamelessly copied your phrasing, but also gave +1 for your answer & hope that's OK for you. –  Stephen Jun 15 '12 at 8:51

When using the hyperref package it works exactly like in Werner's answer at the link you gave, only you need to change the commands to the following:

\renewcommand{\figureautorefname}{$\alpha$}
\renewcommand{\tableautorefname}{$\beta$}
\renewcommand{\pageautorefname}{$\gamma$}

Just change the symbols. Also see hyperref's \autoref-list by lockstep.
