Can someone show me how I can update text using Lyx or Tex code?
Basically, what I want is similar to the Bookmark + cross reference
features in MS Word. For example, I create a bookmark with text
"update me". Then I create a cross reference somewhere else in the
document. The cross reference also shows "update me". When I change
the bookmark text to "you are updated" and select to update the whole
document, the cross referenced text now shows "you are updated".
If you don't want the label to show in output, just put it in a note
(Insert>Note>LyX Note). You can put the label in a note, too, if you
really don't want it to be output.
