# Modify \eqref “equation” to “Eq.”

I would like to modify the \eqref command such that it prints something like "Eq. (1)" instead of "equation (1)". Following this, I get "Eq. equation (1)". How can I remove "equation"?

• Using \usepackage{cleveref} with \Cref{foo} instead of \eqref does this automatically. – user31729 Feb 10 at 11:04
