Is it possible to control the format of cross references to labels so

LyX automagically adds 'chapter', 'section', 'subsection', and
'Figure', most of which are fine. But normally I would prefer to
simply use 'section' for actual subsections too.
/Formatted reference/ looks to be the place to do this, but I've not
been able to find \prettyref's implementation sufficiently documented
There's no special LyX documentation. We just use prettyref as LaTeX would.
Where's that? There are some issues with prettyref, mostly to do with
internationalization and babel support. That's why 2.0 will by default
use refstyle instead, we hope.
and what I have found seems to strongly imply it's use should be avoided.
Nonetheless I tried inserting the \prettyref name definition to my
LaTeX preamble and it did work, but... the text is being prepended to
the LyX 'section 1.1', 'subsection 1.1.1', etc, rather than
What prettyref command did you use? Prettyref itself predefines several
of these things, but you should be able to redefine them yourself.
