### Cross-referencing without the prefix: “Figure, Eqaution…” for several references

Hi everyone,

I have a problem with Lyx, regarding the cross references. In general, the references are working fine. But I wonder if there is a better way to do it in Lyx. When I refer to more than one e.g. equations, Lyx always past the prefix "Equation XY". I attached a screen shot.

Is there a way so suppress the prefix of the second reference? Without interfering with hyperref? So that at the end it looks like:

"....by Equation 3.22 and 3.23..."

This would look much better!! Same for figures and chapters and so on... anyone an idea? (I also tried it without the "and" between both references, same result, but of course without the "and")

and the Output

I also tried to find a work around with refstyle package, as this is used by Lyx. But for any reasons I do not understand, this only works for \ref and not for any other kind of combination stated in the package manual. What am I doing wrong?

Has anyone an idea? Or better a solution to that problem? I searched google like a maniac but could not figure out what to do.... anyone run into the same problem? Thanks for any help!!
