"Using Cross-References

"Cross-references are used in academic and technical documents to refer to related material. In Writer, cross-references have three main purposes:

"They reduce repetition in a document. Instead of repeating information already given, you can give it once and reference it in other places.

"They help readers quickly find related information in which they might be interested.

"When you write a document, they provide a hyperlink that you can select to change the position of the mouse cursor in the document.

"Once cross-references are made, they are listed in the Navigator under References, so that you easily can find them."
