need help ?

Postby tramismile32 » Fri Jul 13, 2018 4:42 pm

Hi all,
new user here and I've been playing around with LyX 1.6.5.
My problem is that reference numbers are favouring references in figure captions before references in the text (even if the text appears before the figure in the document)

For example I could have refs [1] [2] [3] and [4] appear in the text in that order, then later on (further down) add a reference (same as the 3rd reference above) to the caption of a figure and it will rename the ref in the figure caption as [1].

This making the text references (at the top of the document) appear as [2] [3] [1] [4] and the reference in the figure caption (further on in the document) as [1].

I'd like this to appear as [1] [2] [3] [4] in the text and the figure caption (same as the 3rd reference) to be [3]
Any tips or things to try out? I have my bibliographt style as 'unsrt', if that's relevant

Many thanks

add \usepackage{no­toc­cite} to your LaTeX preamble.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
