For all the types of reference, you can select one of the following formats:
- Page: the page number of the target
- Chapter: the number of the chapter where the referenced target is located.
- Reference: the full text set as reference.
- Above/Below: Inserts the words above or below depending on the position of the field relative to the referenced target.
- As Page Style: similar to Page, this inserts the page number where the reference is, but using the formatting specified in the page style. This is very useful when putting a reference to a page in the front matter where roman numerals are usually employed.
If you select Headings or Numbered Paragraphs as type, the following two additional options become available:
- Number (no context): inserts only the number of the heading or of the numbered paragraph. For example, if referencing a numbered item 2.4, it inserts 4.
- Number (full context): inserts the the full number including higher hierarchical levels. For example, if referencing a numbered item 2.4, the full numbering (2.4) is inserted.
Finally, for objects inserted with captions such as a table or a figure, you can choose:
- Category and Number: inserts both the category and number of the referenced object (for example, Figure 6). This is generally the most used formatting for figures and tables.
- Caption Text: inserts the full caption of the referenced object. For example, Figure 6: This is an example figure.
- Numbering: inserts the sequential number of the referenced object, without the category (for example, if referencing Table 2, the field will contain only the number 2).
