I am trying to figure out how to properly refer to my figures and tables and such without giving it the number already because I want Scrivener or MMD to do this at the end. I already checked some topics such as this one, this one, and with regards to MMD this one but that left me with some questions.
So I was wondering two things, first, if I do not use markdown. Is this feature of writing <$n:figure:name_of_figure> also available in the Windows version? I have been testing with it, but it doesn’t seem to work for me. The tag just remains as it is instead of transforming into a number.
Based on this sentence and my testing I would guess it is not available in windows. Is there another way to accomplish something similar without using markdown?
Second, if it isn’t possible without markdown, how am I exactly supposed to refer to the images.
I haven’t really written in markdown yet, but I am trying to explore it and see if it fits me. Right now I dragged and dropped in an image and wrote the caption between square brackets after the image as suggested in one of the above topics. The image ended up in the .fotd file, but the caption wasn’t recognised as such. So I decided to explore the mmd file and noticed it ended up like this:
[The interactions of the users with the different Facebook pages]
(some more text)
[be-like-interactions]: be-like-interactions.png width=445px height=326px[/code]
While I think this is what should be happening:
[code]![The interactions of the users with the different Facebook pages][be-like-interactions.png]
(some more text)
[be-like-interactions.png]: be-like-interactions.png width=445px height=326px [/code]
What am I doing wrong here?
Thanks in advance!
An additional note.
If I write down the following, the image will show up but the reference disappears as well. (The be-like-interactions after [be-like-interactions] is a scrivener link to the image in the research folder)
![This is the caption of the be like interactions image][be-like-interactions]
[be-like-interactions]: be-like-interactions width=500px
