Figure numbering and cross-references

Just wanted to second Wilma’s excellent suggestion - when you have time! I find Scrivener excellent for writing large technical documents and books, with its ability to easily re-arrange sections. But the company I work for insists on section and subsection numbering, like so:

  1. Introduction
  2. Elephants
    2.1 Small elephants
    2.1.1 Small elephants and their love for runny cheese
    2.2 Large elephants
  3. Goldfish
  4. Conclusion

I think I’m correct in saying (after spending an hour or two on it) that I can’t use cross-referencing and autonumber for this. I suppose I’m going to have to go the MultiMarkdown route, or move everything into Word, which then makes it much more difficult to move things around.
