Hi,

I am writing a book using LyX, and I have a question regarding the formula numbering. An exclusive way to add and reference the formula numbers seems to be via "equation labels". This works, but appears rather irritating when one has to invent unique names for hundreds of equations. Is there no simpler way? I do not quite understand why these labels must be used, in the situation when LyX seems to keep track of every new equation all the time, and updates the equation numbers automatically. It would be much easier just to refer to the various equations by these formula numbers, without having to use additional labels. Are there no plans to introduce such an improvement into LyX? Leslaw
