Thanks Richard, I started the LOF with the <$paranum> and then started looking for alternatives that started this chain of communications. (Very educational-BTW) I have gone back to where I started from with the numbered figures. I actually do cross reference by them all through the book.

I must not have had enough caffein this morning! I use IXgen for indexing and love it. I just completely spaced out that you can automagically create markers (any kind) from/for all instances of a pgf format. Sorry, Frank! Pete, IXgen will not only solve your problem quickly and easily, it'll make many index-related tasks far, far easier, too. I highly recommend it. Although if I were you, my first priority would be adding <$paranum> to the LOF spec. I'm really surprised you aren't including the number already. I don't think I've ever seen a list of numbered figures that didn't include the number. You cross-reference them by number, don't you? ("See Figure 3-2") Richard ------ Richard G.
