I have a question regarding referencing figures in the text. Say I have a figure in text with the caption Figure 1: Blah Blah. Then in my main text i refer to this figure saying something like "As you can see from Figure 1 etc...".
Then I realise I've forgotten to add a figure prior to this one and I insert a new figure earlier in the section which becomes figure 1, thus causing the old figure 1 to become figure 2. I'm assuming my in text reference earlier of "As you can see from figure 1 etc..." will not have changed to "As you can see from figure 2 etc...". Am i right in assuming this?
Is there a way of working around this? I have a lot of figures in my document in a number of sections and at present my in text references just say "Figure XXXXXXXX" serving as a reminder to go fill them in at the end. However it would be good if I could do this sooner. Is there a way to ensure these change or do I just have to do it manually if I add figures in earlier sections of the text?
Hope the question is clear enough, please feel free to ask for more information if not. Thank you
