Maybe I am misinterpreting what you want, but it appears that what you want is as simple as:


See \cite[Figure~1]{Einstein:1905ve}, 
see \cite[page~11]{Einstein:1905cc},
see \cite[Equation~(2)]{Einstein:1912bi}.


\textit{On the electrodynamics of moving bodies},
Annalen Phys.\ \textbf{17}, 891-921 (1905)

\textit{Concerning an heuristic point of view toward the emission and
transformation of light},
Annalen Phys.\ \textbf{17}, 132-148 (1905)

\textit{The Speed of Light and the Statics of the Gravitational Field},
Annalen Phys.\ \textbf{38}, 355-369 (1912)

  • Thank you so much... This is excatly i needed... For my report I have just added the reference of the figure like below. \cite[Figure \ref{fig:structure}]{Einstein:1905ve} Mar 12, 2021 at 15:22
