I am compiling a document full of figures with captions and cross-referencing them in a paragraph before the figure. My problem is if I add a new figure before another, the cross-reference gets mucked up. The link actually takes me to the right figure, but the cross-reference text is wrong. It doesn't get updated. Is there a quick fix for this? Thanks.


Press Ctrl + A to select all, then press F9. This updates the text for all references.
