Insert Automatic Numbering...

Automatic Numbering
creates an automatic numbering object, or counter, in the current notebook.
  • The counters available in a particular notebook are usually defined by the stylesheet. The default stylesheet defines counters named "Section", "Subsection", "Subsubsection", "Equation", "Figure", and "Table".
  • Counter values can be displayed either as they exist at the location of the display or as they exist at a remote location defined by a cell tag.
  • A counter named "Page" is always available, but it is only valid when the option to show page breaks is turned on.
