I am trying to typeset a Latex document in LyX. My equation references are showing up as "Eq. 1 blah blah". I would like for them to have parentheses around the numbers, i.e. show up as "Eq. (1) blah blah". Additionally, I would like this to be only for equations, i.e. I want to continue having "Fig. 1 blah blah", not "Fig. (1) blah blah".
It seems that there is a similar question that has been asked, but that person wanted parentheses around all references, as clarified by the first comment in the question.
How can I do this for just equations only? Ideally some kind of preamble addition that only parenthesizes the equations while not touching any of the other references (Figs, Tables, etc.)
