Is there an add-in for Word (2007+ ) that makes inserting of cross references to headings (table of content items) or figures actually usable?
I'm looking ideally for something I know from my Latex editor, when I want to reference something I'm offered with a auto complete drop down that shows me my document structure, figures and tables and I can select / filter them very quickly.
The main problems I'm having with Word cross references
- Cumbersome to find the correct section in the full structure that includes every bloody numbered list
- Always have to reselect that figures are only referenced with "Figure X" and not the whole caption
- Cross Reference window just floating around, always in the way, away when I re-open the document
Taken together, it takes forever to add a reference, maybe that's the reason why most longer Word documents I'm working on don't have them =)
Or maybe I'm just inapt in this regard, are there any tips how to to use the integrated cross reference function in a better way?
