I admit, that my last sentence is very confusing. Just forget about it. What I meant was: If I put the cursor before or behind the math box, i.e in the normal text, I can use the label function. As soon as I put the cursor in the math box the label function is inactive. Therefore I cannot label the equation in the math box. As long as I cannot asign a label to the equation it makes no sense to look at the pdf I guess.
